Text field window


Is it possible when I request a List and Label report, that I get a window where I can put some text in which will be shown at the report.


Hello Kees,

thank you for your post.

There are two different ways to solve this task. Either you go with report parameters which allows you to set the content of a variable (user variable e.g.) or otherwise you go with the function ‘AskString$()’ which displays a dialogue where you can type in the content. You will find this function while using the formula assistant.

For more information please have a look at the Designer Manual (sorry, no actual page or chapter since I don’t know which version of List & Label you are currently using).
