The baseReport component is required for all Siebel reports. The Siebel client passes these parameters to the report when a report is initiated. The report will not run if parameters are not defined correctly.
The ssReportTitle property allows the user to set the report name, independent of the report object definition in the repository. The report title appears in the header of the report and can be modified in the ssReport object for language customizations or company-specific name changes.
The Start method moves the value in the ssReportTitle variable into the pubReportTitle variable so that it can be accessed from anywhere within the report.
