Creating a Report Generator Report - Using Variables and Formulae - Testing

As always, it is a good idea to test each step in the design of a Report Generator report, so that you can catch errors early.

  • one joining the text "No. of Customers: " and the viCustCount integer variable (converted to a string); and

  • one joining the text "Total for the Report: " and the vdInvTotal decimal variable (converted to a string).
The Invoice Footer section contains one formula joining the text "No. of Invoices: " and the viInvCount integer variable, and one that will print the vsCustText string variable.
