Property Value

Yes to use a temporary table; otherwise, No. The default value is No.


A temporary table is used as a buffer or intermediate storage for data. A temporary table is not stored in the database, but is only held in memory until the report is closed. A temporary table is useful when the column data is not mapped directly to a field in the database but is instead the result of a process or operation, such as an aggregation of data from several columns. If a temporary table is not used, the data must be handled by C/AL code.

For an example of the use of the Temporary property, see report 1306 in the CRONUS International Ltd. demonstration database.
