Author Topic: Creating a Saved List - Syntax needed for TCL/ECL Block (UniData)  (Read 2753 times)

I have created a report with filters and the only purpose of the report is to create a Saved List (Datatel - Unidata).  Without the TCL/ECL Block in my report the data returned is correct.  Once I add a TCL/ECL Statement to the report, the report runs but does not create Saved List.

Here is my current statement:

TCL/ECL: SAVE.LIST nameoflist;

Use Active Select List? Is checked.

Am I missing something?

When you save the list, the selected list of records is no longer active.  Add another statement after you save the list, and do GET.LIST nameoflist.  This will make sure the selected records are active before the report is ran.  The checkbox for "Use Active Select List" means you want this TCL/ECL block to act on any previously selected records.
