Hi All,

I need to display in a report only the columns which are selected in a form prior to calling the report. for eg

suppose a report has 5 columns but
the user has selected to display 3 column in a report,then the report must display only the 3 cols.the report layout must be adjusted dynamically based on the no. of cols selection.
by default all the 5 cols will be printed.

Kindly suggest something.

Many Thanks,

Obviously, report needs to know which columns are to be displayed. One way to do that is to transfer this information via parameter(s).

Each of report's fields has to have its own Format trigger which will look like this:
return (:par_display_field_1 = 'Y');
As it returns Boolean, field will be displayed (or not) depending on parameter value.
