Am trying to create a report and am struggling with the layout of it: I try to keep title and graphs and/or table on the same page (just as you can do in - for instance - a Ms Access report). Any suggestions?

This should be no problem. What I need to know is: are you creating a report by scripting or using the WYSIWYG editor?

Bruno Smets posted on 2011-03-02

As I don't really know Java, I try to stay away from scripting myself and stick to the design view.

Okay, it is really easy :).

If you want to output the model title and graphic on  the same page and the next model with the same information (title + graphic) on the next page, then you must enter a text field below the graphic. 

Enter a line break behind the graphic data field and then insert a Text field, select page break and select then the Okay button. Now you will get an extra page for every model.

However what I want is that for each section title, graphic and table are on the same page and not separated.

I try to explain with the screenshots underneath: The first and second one should stick together (I assume the section Break (Next Page) should disappear to get at that point.

The last screenshot shows how I currently have configured it in the design view.

You don't need a new section, just insert a data table with the information you want to have into the section of Selected models and enter a Page break behind the data table in the section of Selected models. It should look like the following picture.

How can I fill the right column ("Executed by" ) of the table shown above with the executing persons? Could you please help me to find the right selection for the data field?

Hi Chistoph


I've the same issue as you ... I haven't found how to add the information of the activity 'execution' , I'll continue on it.

Nevertheless, I found this entry in the community that could help you:

Kind regards

Hi Christoph,

to fill the "Executed by" column with information, you must change some details of the above-mentioned report.

Hi.  I am not  able to run this WYSIWYG report.  What is the significance of the page break?



Eva Klein posted on 2011-09-20

Could you please tell me if you received an error message and if yes what it said? The page break means that a new page will start after each model.

Louise Curran posted on 2011-09-20

thanks for your response.  it seems the page break is not relevant to my issue. 

This is my WYSIWYG report


the error is


line 235:

return ArisData.sort(ArisData.Unique(result),Constants.AT_ID, nLocale)

Error while executing scritp:

Script: report_name, line 235

Thanks again.

Hi, I think my screenshots are not visible.  I describe my report below.  I hope you can now assist with this report:

Selected Models:

for all: selected models


for all: selected models.object definitions (filterable by type)

Data table:

for all: selected models.object definitions (filterable by type).connection list (filterable)


IDENTIFIER: {Selected models.Object definitions (filterable by type).Attribute (filterable by type).Attribute value}

FUNCTION: {Selected models.Object definitions (filterable by type).Name}

DESCRIPTION: {Selected models.Object definitions (filterable by type).Attribute (filterable by type).Attribute value}

ROLE: {Selected models.Object definitions (filterable by type).Connection list (filterable).Source object definition.Name}

error refers to line 235:     return ArisData.sort(ArisData.Unique(result),Constants.AT_ID, nLocale)

Sorry, but this description does not help me to understand what the problem is.

Louise Curran posted on 2011-09-27

Hi Eva, I hope you are able to see this screenshot of the report which gives me the error:

return ArisData.sort(ArisData.Unique(result),Constants.AT_ID, nLocale)

Please let me know if you require further information

Many thanks
