I have already tried using the script from:
but getting an error at runtime.

My report design has 1 primary data set with 2 secondary data sets. In it, I have 4 identical grids, that each contain a table for the primary data set, and tables for the secondaries. If any of the secondary data sets are empty, then I get: Column binding "xx" has referred to a data set column "xx" which does not exist.
I have tried:
- adding visibility rules, including for when the aggregation of lines is 0 for the data set, and adding an onFetch script on the data set
- using findDataSet in the beforeFactory as a condition then dropping the table, as I read that hiding a table still executes its queries
- the script above
- putting my secondary data set table within a parent grid and applying visibility rules to that

This problem actually doesn't happen when I only have one grid (out of the 4), but when I copy the second one, it fails. It is possibly some bug when the secondary data set table is repeated multiple times in a report?

Please help! Thanks.

What version of BIRT are you using? The Data Engine API is a private API. It was exposed for a very long time, but may have had access removed from the latest versions.

If you can attach an example that I can run that shows your issue, I could take a closer look at a solution for you.
