I use Progress report tool called Result to create some queries and out put to a txt file.
But I see many duplicated records in the result.
I cannot find there is a way like select distinct rows for the reports.
How can I eliminate the duplicated records or how can I use distinct to only choose distinct rows?
You have to create your own 4GL procedure like:
/* selectDistinct.p */
DEFINE STREAM ls.
&SCOPED-DEFINE OUT PUT STREAM ls UNFORMATTED
OUTPUT STREAM ls TO "test.txt".
FOR EACH Customer NO-LOCK BREAK BY Customer.Name BY Customer.City:
IF FIRST-OF(Customer.Name) THEN DO:
Customer.Name AT 10.
Customer.City AT 50 SKIP.
OUTPUT STREAM ls CLOSE.
save the file into results directory and add a user option (see image 1) with the name of you
custom procedure. After that the opetion is visible all the time (see image 2)
