Report/Label Editor - Field Flags - Call Next Section Before This Field

The Call Next Section Before This Field field flag (flag number 4096) prints the next Section before printing the current field. It is intended for use on Transaction Reports where at least one of the fields from the Header section follows the line items.

When the Call Next Section Before This Field flag is enabled, the data in the next Section is printed before printing the current field.

For example, in this excerpt from a Sales Transaction report form:

Header Fields: (STH = Sales Transaction Header)
Line 1 - STH: Number
Line 1 - STH: Customer Name
Line 2 - Total: (Flag 4096 = Call Next Section Before)
Line 2 - STH: Total
Line Item Fields: (STL = Sales Transaction Line item)
Line 1 - STL: Stock Number
Line 1 - STL: Description
Line 1 - STL: Qty Shipped
Line 1 - STL: Price
Line 1 - STL: Price Amount

The output would look something like this:

1234  J. Q. Public (Header Line 1)
360   Standard Widgit   10   2.00   20.00
354   Noncolored Binder   1   5.00   5.00
346   Laxian Key   1   2.06   2.06
348   U-No Bar   1   2.00   2.00
Total:   29.06 (Header Line 2)

When the Call Next Section Before This Field flag is disabled, the data in the next Section is not printed before printing the current field.

The output from the preceding example would look something like this:

1234  J. Q. Public (Header Line 1)
Total:   29.06 (Header Line 2)
360   Standard Widgit   10   2.00   20.00
354   Noncolored Binder   1   5.00   5.00
346   Laxian Key   1   2.06   2.06
348   U-No Bar   1   2.00   2.00
