Greetings,

I have created a BIRT report, in which data is displayed in three tables from JDBC source.
Sometimes their is no data for a table, in that case, table(for which data is not present) is not shown at all(even the table's header), i want to show the table headers if their is no data for a table.

Is it possible, if yes , then please guide how to achieve it.

Thanks in Advance.

If I have a table in my report and have no data, the header still shows by default. Can you attach a sample design using the sample database that will show me the issue?

Thanks for the prompt reply Michael,

Actually the table headers are MIME types(e.g : doc, pdf, Video, Audio etc) and beneath them are the number of documents of that type.The headers are generated dynamically. If their are no documents of a specific MIME type then that header is not shown at all.
I want to display the headers even when data of that type is not their with a blank column below that.

Is it possible. If, yes then how?

Thanks Again

You would need to have some idea of what values there should be. For example, a separate dataSet or something where you brought in all the different types.

I was meaning that if there are no documents of a certain type, they don't show in your table. If you want the ones that don't exist to show, you'd either need a static list of types or you'd need to pull all of the types dynamically from your database and use that dataset to set the header values. Hopefully this makes more sense. Let me know.
