Return selected column header of table

I'm sure there's probably a way of doing this.  But I haven't found it yet.
I'm building an application that will act as a kind of "universal" report generator for tables in a MySQL database. 
On startup, a Combo box is populated with table names of the database.  When the user selects one of those tables, the column names are retrieved from the database and used to populate the column headers of the LabVIEW table.  
The idea is that the user will be able to select that column and enter filter contraints into a text box.  Those constraints will then be added to the WHERE statement for that column.  
So far I've only been able to find a way to return the Active Cell or a Selection of Cells when the user clicks on the actual data in the table.  
Is there a direct way to retrun a  selected column header value in LabVIEW?
I'm musing there may be some kind of workaround using transparent controls on top of the headers.  But since different tables will have different numbers of columns that the user sets the width on, I'm not really sure this will work either.

If you make the headers editable, this allows active cells to specify your column selected active row is -1 column is the selected column. you might have to use mouse down? to filter out the ability for the user to edit your column headers though.
Hmmm.....this has possibilities. 
I definately don't want the user changing the actual headers.  Although in this case, maybe I could call that a "feature".   Eventually the idea is that when the user has all the data filtered to his liking , he pushes an "export" buttton and everything is dumped to an Excel worksheet.  He can then manipulate it.  Create graphs.  Etc. Etc.   So maybe changing the headers to something other than somewhat non-intuitive field names in our database is desireable.  
Thanks for the suggestion.

  • How to increase text size of a Column header of table in webdypro

    Hi All,
    Can anybody suggest me how to increase the text size of a column header of table in webdyrpo. I didnt find any option anywhere. can anybody help me out to solve this issue?

    Hi Ravikumar,
    As Sukanta has suggested create a Simpletype of String Type and Length 40.
    Then create a context for the column header and for its type, instead of choosing
    from the drop down, choose the 3 dots.
    In the window that appears, select Local Dictionary, and Select the Simpletype
    that you have created, from the respective package name. And click OK.
    This will make the text of ColumnHeader of type String and Length 40.
    Hope it helps.

  • How to select columns in a table by their column id and not the column name

    How do you select columns from a table based on their column_id.
    I have create a view
    but other than Select * , i cant now select one just one column from it
    the view as follow:
    create view count_student as
    select a.acode "acode",aname "Activity Name",count(ae.acode) "Number of student joined"
    from aenrol ae, activity a
    where a.acode= ae.acode
    group by a.acode,aname;

    The issue is that you have decided to use quoted column names. A pretty horrible idea (mostly for the reasons that you are now finding).
    Re-create the view and get rid of the silly double quotes.

  • Select column from user.table

    I have 100 users. Each one has same table let's say tableA. I want a query that return back the value of a given column in that table for all users with their names. I thought about a join between dba_users (username) and that table. Basically I generate a script by this :
    select 'SELECT CULOMN FROM '||owner||'.'||TABLE_NAME||';' from all_tables where table_name='TABLEA';
    I execute the result script as sysdba.
    But when executed it does not show the name of each user. I mean we can not see which value belongs to whom.
    How can I do that ?
    many thanks before.

  • Stored procedure in  package return multiple columns from multiple tables

    Hi ,
    Can a single stored procedure return multiple column values from different tables.
    tabA: col2, tabB:col3,tabC:col4 etc.
    one more question:
    if a stored procedure like to return 10 columns for a particular record from a single table do i need to define a TYPE statement for each colum like
    TYPE col1 is TABLE of varchar
    TYPE col2 is TABLE of varchar
    here i want to return only one row, not many rows.

    You can try one procedure with OUT or IN/OUT parameters that collect the values from one or more sql statements.
    SELECT table1.DESC1, table2.DESC2
    FROM TABLE1, table2 WHERE
    table1.COD = P_COD and
    table1.cod = table2.cod ;
    END P1;

  • Selecting columns from two table is slow but same

    I am selecting 27 columns from two tables
    which running for more than 30 minutes. but
    if I select count(*) with the same query
    except the columns it is coming in seconds.
    Where is the error?

    If you post
    1) The table definitions for the underlying tables
    2) The indexes that are on the tables
    3) The two SQL statements you're running
    4) The explain plan for both statements
    we can probably be of some assistance.
    My guess is that the count(*) is able to return much more quickly because the optimizer is able to use a significantly faster query plan that is based on an index which the longer-running query cannot utilize. Without the information I've requested, though, it's hard to do more than speculate.

  • How to add the values of all selected columns in a table and display it ?

    Hi all,
    I am using jdeveloper
    my page jsff page contains one ADF table and one textbox
    i have two database tables A & B ,
    i need 2 columns from each table . say (A.product_no ,A.product_name,B.prodeuct_price ,B.confirm)
    here product_no is primary key and present in both tables.
    i need to create a VO combining these two tables and put it as ADF table in a jspx page
    Functionality :
    my 'confirm' field is a checkbox field in table . whenever the checkbox is selected,
    the corresponding price will be getting added and display it in a textbox.
    if my first 4 price values are 3000 , 2000 ,4000,2000
    and if i select first 3 values , then the text box should contain 9000 value.
    i need help ...
    i need help in creating VO and functionality part

    it is easy: create an entity object for every table and one view object where you select your both entity objects and join them in your select statement.
    Your desired 'confirm' functionality could be achieved with helpp of view object transient attributes - for more information see:

  • How to export selected columns in a table using expdp of oracle10g

    Hi all..
    I have a table with 10 columns and i want to export only 4 columns(selected columns) data using expdp
    Pl. tell me if we can do this and if yes what is the syntax.

    That's not possible, you could use QUERY to specify where clause but not columns in select clause,
    for example,
    QUERY=employees:'"WHERE department_id > 10 AND salary > 10000"'
    you could use
    create table2export as select c1,c2,c3,c4 from tableof10columns;and export the temp table.

  • Variable column header in table control

    Hi all, I need a variable column header text in table control. I am doing the following but is not working,
    I have deleted the header field that the wizard created me thorugh a internal table, and put a I/O field instead.
    I have assigned a variable in the name of this field.
    In the PBO I am writing the following:
      LOOP AT   i_details
           WITH CONTROL tc_detail
           CURSOR tc_detail-current_line.
        MODULE m_modify.
    MODULE m_modify OUTPUT.
      IF tc_detail-current_line EQ '1'.
        var1(header column text) = 'text1'.
        var2(header column text) = 'text2'.
    But with this is not working, the rare thing is that the first time that the screen is shown, this value is not appearing. After press Enter or some action, the value appears.
    I am not doing anything in PAI. The only code that is in PAI is:
    Loop at i_details.
    Nothing more.

    First just drag and drop all the fields that are to be a part of the table control. Then drag the label on the column header. Give name and text to the label.

  • Dynamic Column Heading in Table Control

    I have a table Control which needs dynamic heading for the first column. So i dragged a label and placed it on the Column 1 header. I gave the corresponding declaration and assignment in TOP include for that screen field. I also tried assigning values in the PBO of the screen also. I even tried replacing the Label with an I/O field. It is not allowing.
    Nothing is working. Any suggestions.

    Instead of the text field for your column heading, put an input/output field there, and specify the field for output only. Then assign the field with the header that you want on your PBO.

  • VC Multiple Table Column Header Lines, Table Width Adjustment

    Hi Experts,
    1) How to have Multiple headers for a column in a single cell i.e multiple lines in the same cell. please provide with example.
    2) How to set your table to adjust the width automatically for all screen resolution since columns of the table disappear and some of the content of the header is not visible if the screen resolution is low.
    3) Is there any way to set the screen resolution for our report alone to very high resolution even if the end user has set the system resolution to low. The reports were developed on a high resolution and now we face the problem as citrix is rolled out and it is standard 1024 * 768 resolution.
    Thanks and Regards,

    Wrapping the text of a table column caption into lines is currently not possible. Workarounds could be:
    - using a single character text and a tooltip for the description
    - using an image containing the wrapped text
    Both workarounds have their problems.
