Dataset Initialisation [message #1016323] Wed, 06 March 2013 03:51 Go to next message

As far as I can tell, stand alone data sets (i.e. not joined etc) are not 'processed' unless one of their fields is part of the report.

I have a report which requires me to process some information in an 'unused' dataset, and pass information to the report.

I have it working as expected but need to place one field from the unused dataset onto the report, to initialize it and make it fetch. I then run code in its onFetch and afterClose.

Qn: Can I force a dataset to fetch, even if it does not have any fields within a report?

You might look into using the Data Engine API. Here's a link to a devShare post, from BIRT Exchange:
