Hello Fellows,
I have a certain report and I get this int var value the number of copies that i'm suppose to do in one print at the time.
I would like to do carbon copies in just ONE print labeling them as "Original" , "Fist copy", and so on. the Original might get more that one page off course !!

Can any of you give me any sort on inspiration to do the job...please.

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure I'm totally understanding the goal, but if I am, one thing you could do would be to use java to run your report with separate run and render tasks. Then, you'd just run the render task the number of times that your int variable says to and change a label within your report for each render. Hope this helps.

Ok you understand the question.

Can I do it with java scipt ?
Can I do it in the frameset ?

Thank you very much

For the suggestion I had above, you're probably looking at using java. See this: Eclipse Wiki - Separate Run and Render (BIRT)

You could probably design a report that repeated the report contents x number of times based on your input int value, if you wanted to avoid java.

It appears that Kris is working on a javascript solution for you, over on BIRT Exchange. I'll just point this thread to that, for when he posts it.
