Special character display

Post Author: Eany

CA Forum: General

Depending on a @parameter, in my detail,

I need to display either spaces if "N", or a right pointing white arrow, within a blue circle background, if "Y".

How do I contrust such a display ?

I can draw a box, and use roundings to get a circle, but how to get the arrow on top of it, and how to suppress te whole lot if @parameter is "N" ?

Thanks in anticipation.

    The easiest way would be to create an image (jpg or bmp) of a right pointing arrow with blue circular background and then insert it into the report. Then, right click on the image then 'Format Graphic' and the under the Common tab, click on x-2 next to suppress and in the formula workshop window type

    @parameter = 'N';

    This should suppress if the value is N which will result in a blank and display the image if the value is Y.
