I am using a reporting object pointed at a FOCUS file as my data source. I created WHERE clauses in the RO to use as filters in a Designer page. I would like to exclude null values from the listbox values for the filter. I havent yet found a way to do this but thought I would post it here.

Thanks Martin but Im not sure how I would do that without excluding them from the data too.

 

 

Assuming that its a static table (meaning not live data that constantly changing during the day), what you can do is to create an overnight job using Report Caster that will create a hold file where you will only keep valid records (remove null values) and using that hold file, you will create you filter.

Ive not had any luck editing a reporting object to use any table (for filter values) other than that chosen when creating the RO. I manually edited the text in the filter to use a different file but it reverts back to the original when saving. I can see how this method would work when manually coding reports but reporting objects using dynamic parameters dont seem to offer the choice of using a different data set.

Thanks
