Reports are made easily with SQL programming language and other EMDI commands that are implemented on the comments.

Variables that you can use in the code:

(in “where” command)

:apo                                            starting date
:ews                                            final date

Report description                 1st parameter from accounts
Report code                             2nd parameter from accounts
:param1                                    3rd parameter from accounts
:param2                                   4th parameter from accounts

:search                                     search for forms that search is checked
:orderby                                   it is added for sorting instead of “order by” command

--nodecimals--                        unlimited decimals
--combo--                                drop-down list

 

Fields in the code

(used in the select command)

doc                                            sales line number “Aa” (creates a button that opens sales in the selected document)
cus                                            client line number “Aa” (creates a button that opens the selected customer)
pro                                            product line number “Aa” (creates a button that opens the selected product)
prd                                            product line number “Aa” (creates a button that opens the documents of the selected product)
ksq                                            its result is used in the update script (creates a button that opens an editor for data editing)
eml                                           the e-mail to be send|Name|Value|E-invoice link|Shipping tracking number (creates a button that sends an e-mail)
sms                                           the mobile to be send|Name|Value|E-invoice link|Shipping tracking number (creates a button that sends sms)

NEXT VALUE FOR “gen_counter” :    line number

 

Update Script

Up to 2 scripts can be executed, delimited with “;”.

In the 1st example, we can edit and save selected customer’s fields. It is important to always include the key field “Aa”.

Example 1:

The 2nd example contains 2 scripts. First, a new line is created (if not already exists) on the table “kinhseis” and then we select to show 2 fields from the same table, “Order stage” and “Notes”. In this case, we also use the the key field “Aa” (“kinhseis”.”Grammh”).

Example 2:

 

Custom fields from the update script

The “Field for editing” is used to set a list of options in the field we want.

In “Field options” we write the options for the list, separated by comma (“,”). It’s not compulsory.

The “Reading field” is used to get the contents of the field we want. It’s not compulsory.

By using the “Link” field, we can execute an external link or application.

When a web link is called, we can use the following variables:

#VL1: edit field
#VL2: reading field

For example:

When a local programm is called, there is no use for variables because they are being sent as 1st and 2nd parameters.

For example:

 

EMDI commands

The first line can contain EMDI commands as comments in SQL and is automatically created whenever you make a change:

Where searchtitle, the title of the search field (2 fields).

If you want to create a graph, then where “xx” you input the field for axis x and “yy” the field for the axis y and “xxlabel” the title of the field that is on the axis x.

To create loops, fill the fromvalue, tovalue, stepvalue.

To count the lines we use the following variable after the select:

 

Colors

In order to paint lines with colors (yellow,red,green) we can define a variable that takes up to 9 values delimited with comma “,” :

1,22,2,45,3,90,3,111,9

Lines are colored accordingly as follows:

yellow,red,green,yellow,red,green,yellow,red,green

 

Drop-down list

A drop-down list could be created where its each option inserts a code into the variable --combo-- from the corresponding psql file.

In the following example, we create 2 options, DELIVERY and RESERVED:

When the user selects DELIVERY then the content of sql1.psql file is inserted in place of --combo-- variable.

psql file example:

or whichever sql code piece we would like to implement in our main code.

The psql files are saved in the same folder as the reports (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\SBZ systems\EMDI\reports).
