REPORT.RUN Function

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013

Loads and runs the report that you specify.

REPORT.RUN(Number [, ReqWindow] [, SystemPrinter] [, Record])

Parameters

Number
Type: Integer

The ID of the report that you want to run. To specify the report from a list, on the View menu, choose Symbols.

If the report that you specify does not exist, then a run-time error occurs.

ReqWindow
Type: Boolean

Specifies whether the request window for the report will be displayed. The request window is part of the report object.

Specify true to display the request window before you run the report. Specify false to run the report without displaying the request window.

This parameter overrides the setting of the UseRequestPage Property of the report. If you do not provide a value for the ReqWindow parameter, then the setting of the UseRequestPage property is used.

Client-side printing is not supported by Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client or Microsoft Dynamics NAV Portal Framework for Microsoft SharePoint 2010. If you set this parameter to false and the report will be run on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client or a Microsoft SharePoint site, then you must set up the report to print from Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server, otherwise an error occurs at runtime. For more information, see How to: Specify Printer Selection for Reports and STARTSESSION Function (Sessions).

SystemPrinter
Type: Boolean

Specifies whether to use the default Windows printer or use table 78, Printer Selection, to find the correct printer for this report. For example, if the report prints on continuous pages, you can set up an entry in the Printer Selection table to specify to always print this report on a specific printer.

Specify true to use the printer that is defined as the system printer. Specify false, which is the default value, to use the printer that is defined in the Printer Selection table.

Record
Type: Record

Specifies which record to use in the report. Any filters that are attached to the record that you specify are used.

If you do not know the specific report that you want to run when you are designing the report, then use this function or the REPORT.RUNMODAL Function. If you do know the specific report that you want to run, then you can use the RUN Function (Report) or the RUNMODAL Function (Report). When you use these functions, the request page runs modally. However, when you choose Preview on the request page, the Print Preview page does not run modally.
