create a summary column (count) on any unique field of your report.

Tell me what your requirement exactly...

Do you want only sequence number then you can use this query in your data model..

SELECT ROWNUM
FROM ( SELECT 1 FROM DUAL
GROUP BY CUBE(1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) )
WHERE ROWNUM <= 10

If anything revert back.

Thanks

ARN_NO MANUFACTURER
--------------- --------------------
2541 SEIMENS
1654 NOKIA
2151 HP COMPAQ
1653 NOKIA
2151 WESTERN DIGITAL

when i generate report the auto serial number will generate before arn_no as below example

----------------------------------------------
S.No ARN_NO MANUFACTURER
---- ----------- -------------------------
1 2541 SEIMENS
2 1654 NOKIA
3 2151 HP COMPAQ
4 1653 NOKIA

this is what i want S.No sequence autogenrate numbers in reports
how can i do?

and the second thing i wanna to enter a name in report which is not database item. through a parameter i can manage ARN_no but when ever i print the report it should print the name as well what i enter in the non database item

i.e. Delivered <name should display here>

Regards

As usually, you aren't the very first user who wants to display sequence number. If you think that there's something wrong with solutions people already suggested (just being curious: what exactly you did not like?), feel free to search the board; you'll (more or less) find the same solutions as seen in this thread.

There are a few possible solutions (that I can remember of and which are quite simple): the simplest is to open Paper Layout and type
Delivered &parameter_name
Ampersand (&) will display parameter's value.

Or, you could create a field whose source is this very parameter.

Or, you could even create a formula column which would return parameter's value and display formula's value.

Or, you could create another parameter and set its value in the AFTER PARAMETER FORM trigger as (for example)
RETURN 'Delivered ' || :parameter_name;


Personally, I use the first approach whenever possible (as it requires NO coding at all and is easy to implement).

Hi,
If ARN_NO is unique then just you create one summary column for count and source is ARN_NO and place it in layout model.. otherwise

just you take rownum in datamodel like,

select rownum,empno,ename from emp;

Thanks
Mano
