Does anyone knows why Integer given in DataItem in Report many times.

For example report no. 402 Purchase Document Test.

    Basically the Integer DataItem is like a FOR loop for reports: f.e. if you set an Invoice to print in 3 copies, it will get filtered for 1..3 and basically works as a FOR I := 1 TO 3 loop.

    It is also used to process data from temporary tables. See Sales Order (Report 10075) as an example.
    There are no bugs - only undocumented features.

    Which is, in turn, a subcategory of the FOR cycle :wink:
