XL Reporter and User Tables

Hello everyone,

I've searched this forum for information about using user tables in a XL Report and found that it doesn't provide this functionality... Is this right?

So, I would really appreciate if someone could tell me how I can use the info saved in the UDT when launching the report. It is not an option for me saving the info in user defined fields because it's a lot of data that I want to show in the XL Report... could someone tell me a workaround for solving this problem?

Thank you very much in advance,

Mariana Mazzero

    Hi Mariana,

    I've come across this issue. In the end I wrote VBA code in Excel that established its own database connection and pulled the UDT data in to the XL Reporter report. This ended up with a 2 stage process; you ran the XL Report then ran a macro which added the extra data. This may work for you but obviously depends on the nature of the data and how you wish to merge it.

    Hope this helps,

      Thank you Edward and Owen for your answer. As I can see It's not possible to add user tables.

      The VBA solution has been very helpfull to me, though I found a function in XL Designer that allows you to get other data from another database. If someone needs it, you have to click the function button->functions->get other data.

      I've tried this and it works fine, maybe it's more simple that writing VBA code 😊

      Anyway, thanks for your answers!

    As you have stated in your post ... the 2005A SP01 XL Reporter does not currently support the ability to add your own user defined tables. The XL Reporter does support the ability to add your own user defined fields. There is currently not a workaround for this.
