STDHDR

The STDHDR program generates the standard Oracle OLAP heading at the top of every page of report output.

The standard running page heading consists of two lines. The first line includes the date and time on the left and the page number on the right. The second line is blank.

The heading output is sent to the current outfile.

Syntax

STDHDR

Usage Notes

Setting LSIZE

LSIZE must be set to a value of at least 29 before you use STDHDR. Otherwise the heading does not look right. A value less than 26 produces an error. The default for LSIZE is 80.

Creating a Custom Heading

When PAGING is set to YES, Oracle OLAP automatically inserts the standard heading at the top of each page of output. To get a different heading you must write a program that produces the heading and set the PAGEPRG option to the name of that program. To return to the standard heading, set PAGEPRG to 'STDHDR'. (See the PAGEPRG option for more information.)

Using STDHDR in a Heading Program

When you use PAGEPRG to specify a heading program, you can still use the standard heading in your custom heading by executing STDHDR as part of your program. Generally, you place STDHDR before the statements that produce your customized heading. See Example 10-152, "Creating a Custom Heading for a Report".

The STDHDR Program

The STDHDR program uses the HEADING and CONVERT commands, as follows.

HEADING L W 8 <CONVERT(TODAY, TEXT,'<DD><MTXTL><YY>') TOD> -
        R W LSIZE-25 'Page ' L W 6 D 0 PAGENUM
BLANK

Examples

Example 10-152 Creating a Custom Heading for a Report

Suppose you would like each page of your report to include the standard header and also the customized title "Annual Sales Report." To accomplish this, define a small PAGEPRG program called report.head.

DEFINE report.head PROGRAM
PROGRAM
CALL STDHDR
HEADING WIDTH LSIZE CENTER 'Annual Sales Report'
BLANK
END

In your report program, set PAGING to YES, and specify the preceding program to execute after every page break by setting the PAGEPRG option to 'REPORT.HEAD' (see the PAGEPRG option for further information). When you run the report, each page contains the following combination of the standard heading and your custom heading.
