Tabular report print excluding data



Hi guys,

Is it possible to print the tabular report excluding some data?

I have a tabular report, where we keep some data and one of the column is important for analytics, but should not be included in the printed report. It is a report with totals and aggregations, so I want to see in the printed report the totals without the aggregated fields, only the total without the data it combines.

I know it might be possible to create two different datapages, but it is not good practice to use a datapage just for printing a single report sometime.


Does anybody have any JS or CSS suggestions for my case?

It is possible if you use the Old PDF generator and CSS styles to hide the needed field.
It is a bit tricky because the PDF generator does not see new CSS 3 selectors, however, it is possible.

Please find files with the sample application and PDF instructions attached.
You can import the application in your account and play around with it.

The idea is to create additional datapage which you will use to print reports. It should be just the same as the datapage for WEB.
The difference is that we will use the predefined criteria to find the result set. we will pass the values for criteria as parameters within PDF generator link.
The instruction on how to create the old PDF generator link is in the file attached.

"PDF_Report" Datapage is for  the web site to be deployed.
"PDF_Print" datapage is the page that we will use to print the report and hide fields that we do not want to see.

I use CSS property "color" to hide the information. I color the text the same as the background.

Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding this solution.

Hi everyone!  Caspio has new update and enhancement about PDF Documents. You can now insert PDF documents on results pages in addition to details pages. You can now as well customize the “Download PDF” action link using the associated style and localization, or create a custom display during DataPage configuration.

It is available in R31 version: https://howto.caspio.com/release-notes/caspio-31-0/
