    hi @mdsr,
    A integer table is offen use i report (like 206) because they use temporary table, and on previous version of the report element it was not possible to use a temporary table.
    So a lot of legacy here :smile:
    For help, do not use PM, use forum instead, perhaps other people have the same question, or better answers.

    Hello @mdsr ,

    The "Integer" DataItems are a kind of FOR-NEXT construct where you know upfront the number of iterations in the loop, but you do not want to/or cannot link this directly to a physical table in your database.

    Example:

    You want to generate three copies of your invoice. So you implement a dataItem "CopyLoop" based on Integer and set a filter to Number 1..3.

    This forces the system to run through the more indented dataitems the number of times you defined in the "CopyLoop" and therefore create 3 copies.
