Re: Report shows differently to fact page

Miriam, firstly what we are discussing is a fault in FH for which there is no ideal solution until CP fix it.

 

There are several ways to get a Note into a Narrative report sentence as discussed in the FHUG Forum thread:

 

  1. In the Report Options tick the ‘Inc. Event/Attr Notes’ option and the Note is added as an extra sentence but without Source Citation footnote superscripts.

  2. In the Sentence Template use the {note} code to embed the Note within the sentence (but if followed by {date} gets upset in the report).
    The sentence shown in the Facts tab Sentence box is perfectly correct. Only the Report sentence exhibits the fault.
    Narrative reports detect the above tick option and {note} code to prevent the Note from being shown twice.

  3. In the Sentence Template use the %FACT.NOTE2% code to embed the Note within the sentence and avoid the {date} problem.
    Narrative reports do not detect this code, so if ‘Inc. Event/Attr Notes’ is ticked the Note appears twice.
    If the Note text is very long then this workaround may not include all of the Note text.

 

I hope that explains the situation.
