The Load Report Definitions utility loads report definitions from a sequential file to the specified report definition file. You must use this utility (rather than the Synergy DBL isload utility) when loading a sequential report definition file back into a Synergy™ ISAM file.
|1.||Select ReportWriter utilities > Load report definitions.|
|2.||In the Load Report Definitions window, enter data in the fields as instructed below.|
Report definition file
Enter the name of the report definition file into which you want to load report definitions. This field defaults to the name of the report definition file ReportWriter is currently using.
Enter the name of the unloaded file from which to load report definitions. If you don’t specify a filename extension, it defaults to .ddf.
Indicate which reports you want loaded:
All = Specify all report definitions or a set of reports using a wildcard character (* or ?).
Single = Specify a particular report.
If you chose All in the Selection option field, you can enter a partial report name with a wildcard character to specify a set of reports. For example, if you type ORDER*, all report names that start with “ORDER” will be selected. If you type *ORDER*, all report names that contain the character sequence “ORDER” will be selected.
If you chose Single in the Selection option field, enter the name of the report definition you want to select. To select from a list of reports that are already in the report definition file, select Utility functions > List selections.
In the example in figure 1, all report names that start with “CUST” will be selected.
|3.||To load the report definitions, exit the window. When processing is complete, you are returned to the ReportWriter utilities menu.|
