Report Writing and Programming in Express Maintenance Part 1

Report Writing / Programming in Express Maintenance Part 1

I have found calculations and accessing variables not intuitive in the RAP environment so these are my notes to help eliminate some pain between tasks.

Basics: SQL = "Structured Query Langauge" Variable = "A container to hold a specific value, this could be an integer, string, etc.."

Start with the end in mind


  • Add your local variables these will be containers for values, see image above

  • Declare your global variables where values will come from another source


  • Map your global variable to your local variables

  • Sub reports will have logic and calculations then will get assigned to your global variables
