#use of @CompDesc in Management Report Designer report header

  • 1.  #use of @CompDesc in Management Report Designer report header

    Posted 05-11-2018 03:33 PM
    ​Using the @CompDesc  variable works fine when I submit a report individually or in a report group as long as the report group includes reports linked to the same GL Database.

    Otherwise the default company name (that the report group is linked to) appears on every report, regardless of the company that the specific reports are linked to.

    I tried changing the report group default company to @any but then the reports all show the name of my default company.

    Any suggestions other than hardcoding the company name in the header section of every report?

    Have you tried leaving that autotext at the header of your column defintion?

    It worked for me when I tried this with MR2012CU14.

    Thanks for the feedback. I just tried your solution by adding the variable @unitdesc to the column header and then ran a group of reports from various GL database sources and they each displayed their correct individual company names.
    Although not quite the same name as @company name this will work.
