Example 1: Template with placeholders

In this example, you create a report template that uses two placeholders. The placeholders will appear on the Variables page of the New Report from Template wizard.

When users create a report from this template, they must supply values for all placeholders in the template. Users can:
  • Populate a placeholder with a literal value; for example, "Orders By Product Groups And Areas".
  • Populate a placeholder with a variable from the data schema; for example, {orderline.product.catname} .
