Often it is desirable to display a message, such as ‘No matching records’, when a report does not contain data. Unfortunately, Crystal Reports does not have a function to easily identify this state.
Most report designers are familiar with the parameter’s ‘Allow Multiple Values’ option. When enabled, this option allows a report’s user to select one or more values for a parameter at runtime. The individual running the report could select one or more countries, for example. Should the individual want to select all countries, he or she would need to add each country individually when the prompt is presented. If there are a lot of countries, this could be a time-consuming task. Fortunately, there is a better way.
In this sample, we will create a report that generates a form letter to each customer, with terms and conditions on the back side (represented as Cogniza’s logo). Moreover, the page numbering will only count the front of each page.
