Creating a Global List Variable

A global list variable, based on the AcList class in the AFC library, holds the data rows as they are obtained from the input datastreams, for later access by the sort datastream. In the Opportunities by Sales Rep report, this variable is called RowList. You add the global list variable to the top-level component in the report design, namely the report design itself.

To create a global list variable in the report design

  1. In Actuate e.Report Designer Professional, in the Report Structure window, right-click the OPSLSREP top-level component, and then choose Properties.
  2. Add a new variable to the OPSLSREP component, using values described in the following table.





    Externally Defined Data Type

    (Leave unchecked.)





    For more information, see Adding a Variable.

In the Opportunities By Sales Rep example, the RowList variable holds the merged data rows that were created in the GenerateDataStream report section. After each combined data row is built, it is added to the list by calling the AddToTail method on the RowList variable.
