Hey guys -

I'm pretty new to BIRT reporting so I'm not even sure this is possible.

I've been asked to make an "employee profile" export. My dataset consists of rows of employee IDs, with names, job history etc.

What I want to do is, for each unique ID, generate a separate page when run, displaying all the information relating to that ID/row, iterating until there was no more data (or no more unique employee IDs). All the tutorial videos display the data in rows all on one page, or in charts etc

My gut is that it's something really simple, but if anyone know where to start with this type of query.

I'm not sure it makes a different but I'm using a flat data source (csv) file.

Thank you in advance!

Do you know how to set groups in the table properties?

I'm not sure why that would not work for what you described.

You would just need to set a page break after each id as the group page break setting.

Hello, and thank you so much for your response!

I'm super new to BIRT, but setting up groups sounds like something more easily searchable for a tutorial/support, as does the page break method.

I'll do some experimenting, and thank you again for your time.

Kind regards,

Kyle

No problem. You will find there isn't much support on BIRT besides here and Stack Overflow.

This playlist should help you pick up some momentum. Good luck!
