7.24.2 DEF_HEAD Comments / Warnings
- When assigning specific line attributes to fields or text in a DEF_HEAD command note that the line numbers used are the actual line numbers that the field will be printed on (unlike the DEF_BREAK and DEF_LINE) commands. Thus specifying *L004 against a field means that the field will always print on report line 4.
- If you use an expandable group expression in a DEF_HEAD command FIELDS and/or TRIGGER_BY parameter(s) and you change the layout using the report design facility, LANSA will substitute the expression with the actual fields. This is the only way LANSA can assign attributes to the individual fields regardless of which group they initially came from.
