I'm trying to use query results to retrieve a list of departments from a database, then have those departments appear in a multi-select input control. For the longest time I was getting "(NULL)" for every department in the query, and selecting one of the null results would run the report as if I had selected an actual department. If the department name itself is the first visible query column, I receive a list of null results, but if I use a column which returns integers as the first visible column and the department name column as the second visible column, suddenly the list returns integers followed by department names ("01 | 01 - Grocery"). I'd like to be able to show only department names without first displaying a number, but I can't seem to figure it out. I'm getting the feeling it has something to do with data types, but I don't know enough to pinpoint the problem. The parameter class I'm using is java.util.collection if that helps at all. Thanks!
Displaying query input control values basically requires the following:
- pull data for Value column and Visible column from database with input control (IC) query
- specify valid field names from your query for Value column and Visible column
Make sure that you are using correct field names. If you need further assitance, it would be helpful to see your IC query and Value/Visible columns config.
