Fundamentals Level II


1. Intro to Report Fragments

The need to combine related data from different modules and/or different data segments is a need often found in report writing. So, to be prepared for one of those reports we show you how to do it efficiently and make sure everything goes as planned.

2. Report Fragment Examples


3. Intro to Control Structures

This is where we introduce the more powerful aspects of report writing that put you in control of your reports. You can think of control structures as computer “decision making”. This is where we show you how to create reports that conditionally process data based upon a set of conditions or requirements that you define. Control structures are also useful for accessing data that is not normally accessible in the standard report writer configuration, such as data fields not in the current detail segment.

4. Control Structure Examples
We cover two very useful and real world examples. One on using multiple indexes and another on incorporating previous visit data into a report.
5. Using Variables in Reports
An introduction and an example is done to cover memory, temporary and environment variables.
6. Slash Arrays

Meditech's run-time temporary storage area is a great place to get to know. It may be deleted after your report runs but in the mean time we show you how to put it to good use. By good use we mean things like run-time conversions and mapping so that the next time a specification calls for converting the entries in your dictionaries into something else you will be ready.
