Rich Client (v3.1) WebI Report with free text and generated from outside...

Former Member

Hi,

I use Rich Client v3.1

For my customer, I created a WebI Report. In this, there's a cell for free text. This free text can be filled by several users when the WebI Report was generated.

I don't want to give access to WebI Report because these users aren't reliable.

I create a small website to allow these users to type a free text... This text is in a database...

After, I have to collect this data,insert it into my cell and generate the new report.

My questions are these :

1. The process for the webI report generation is :

- The report is generated for specific users without text in the cell

- The specific users look at this report and type a free text via a website.

- This free text is inserted in the cell

- The report is generated again for all users with free text in the cell

-> The 1st generation is OK.... But how to generate automatically the second time? Can we launch the generation with php command for example? Have you an other solution?

2. To collect the free text in a database and insert it into my cell, must I to create a object in an univers or is there an other solution?

Thanks

Yannick

Hi Yannick,

As I understood, the text is inserted on a website and it get stored in database.

Is the database same as your reporting database?

Are you fetching this value through an universe object? If yes, is it coming from same universe or another?

After first generation, do you expect the cell to go blank once the report is generated for the second time?

Hi,

Thanks for your interest.

The database can & can't the same as my reporting database... because I've several reports for several teams.

For the moment, I haven't created any universe object to fetch this value.

For the 1st generation, the cell is empty. The team looks at the report and type the text which fill the cell in the report. The 2nd generation is done automatically if it's possible one the team type the text. Then, the report is generated for the second time with the cell filled with the text.

So, how can I do all this?

Regards,

Yannick
