Hello,

I have one query as:

I create one very simple report with a query -
select * from emp where job like :ejob;

I want to put a condition with hiredate for a particular Employee, as

if hiredate is null then do not display that whole row of the related employee.

How can I do it?

I have used cursor, but it does not work.
Because in Reports, trigger is nothing but a function form. That must return something.

And as it RETURNs something, the focus goes out of the function & cursor remains open.

Thanks in advance,
-P

You can return FALSE in the format trigger of the repeating frame, when the condition matches. Otherwise return TRUE.

Edit: No idea why do you want to use a cursor, instead of an if clause.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply.
But it does not work. As I explained earlier.

And the reason I am using cursor is, I want to check whether this is possible with the cursors?

Thanks,

I still can't understand why you have to use a cursor; in a report like yours, use repeating frame's FORMAT TRIGGER as Vamsi suggested.
function R_G_EMPNOFormatTrigger return boolean is
begin
  return (:hiredate is not null);
end;
