Running an SQR from within your PeopleCode program

Therefore, the best and safest way to launch an SQR program is to use the People Code functions CreateProcessRequest() and Schedule(). The CreateProcessRequest function allows you to create a Process Request object. Remember, you should be coding your People Code programs using the Object Oriented methods. Once you’ve created your object, you can assign values to its properties and use the Schedule method to submit the process request for scheduling. The CreateProcessRequest function takes 2 arguments. The Process Type and the Process Name.

How can we romove multiple duplicate rows of data printing under each Print command in SQR Program?

Hi Friends.

Instead of Print command, by using String.So that we can get each and every row one time in either CSV/HTML/XML output format.

Print $Name(,)
Print $Name (,)
Print $Address2(,)
Print $State (,)
Print $Country(,) /* Use Strings here to remove multiple duplicate rows of data*/
STRING $Name $Address1 $Address2 $State $Country BY ',' INTO $ST1
STRING $N ,............................................................ BY ',' INTO $ST2
PRINT $ST3 (+1,1)
