I have a section of my report that I need to expand. Right now it appears like this:

What I need to show is


Business Component: Band In A Box

I have all the information is a single table. Do you have an example of how to accomplish this type of thing where each field label and value is on a new line?

I think you have to create this by yourself. But no worry, it is very simple with 2 loops. Here are step:

  1. Loop through your datastore, with each row you build a html table
  2. Inside the <tbody>, you make another loop though each row items and each of them, you echo a <tr>

That all. Please let me know if you have any difficulty.

OK. Normally when I build a koolreport in the report file I create a datastore like this

       $sql = "SELECT *
        FROM  BC_PR_list_temp as BPlt
       WHERE BPlt.taxyear='$taxyear' AND item!='' AND type='BC'";


Then in the view file I create

the table like this:

                "bottom"=>"<td colspan='6 style='text-align: right'><b>Total qualified wages for : {item}</b></td><td style='text-align: right'><b>{sumAmount}</b></td><br>",


Now, Are you saying to NOT do it that way at all? Do you want me to do codeigniter3 sql query directly? And then manually build the table? Do you have an example of how that is done?

Sorry, I am pretty simple minded when it comes Koolreport!

No, I do not mean you are not using KoolReport and coding yourself by CodeIgniter. Give me sometime I will write some code for you.

Richb201 commented on Nov 22

OK. Thanks. A little psuedo code goes a long way.....

Any luck on this?
