Help Setting up a table with 1 to 6 rows

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to fix a table all day. I have my main data and then a secondary data file that uses a LookupID number to match back between files. The secondary datafile will contain the table information. I can create the table using the FusionPro Rules for Table Style and Table- from data source. It is almost good enough to pass. The issue is I need to have a check box between each column. See below and please disregard the first column in the example as that is the LookupID number. I have tried converting my table to javascript that I created the Table-From Data Source to add the check box but all I get is the first row to show up as check boxes.


I have also tried creating a table using javascript but when I get the secondary data file selected, I cannot get the first field to be seen. I also cannot get a loop command to work. I usually try to find code in the support community sites and change them to work for me but haven't had success with this one.

Please note that the second column has some long records that will need to wrap if possible. It is always fun when clients don't consider how long some fields actually are when placed into there letters. Also I am trying to get at least six rows into the table, I mention this because some will have more than six rows.

Thank you for any help, it is appreaciated. I am trying to get better with the table scripts.

Good Morning,

So I have been able to make at least a little progress on this job. I have finally gotten the file to link to a secondary database and make a table pulling the fields needed. My only issue is I still cannot get the check boxes to show up in front of each column. I am including what I have been able to get to work so far. Can someone maybe give me an idea what I need to add to this to make the boxes work. The checkbox is using webdings lowercase c to create the box. I tried setting the content with the letter c since I did define the font. I have also tried just setting up fields in the data to accomplish this. Both have not worked. Any ideas or help is appreciated.
