This script is called before the selected report is run. You can use this to change the report or output properties, or to prevent the report from running for some reason.

Parameters
A reference to the Stonefield Query Application object, the name of the report, the output type ("PREVIEW," "PRINTER," "FILE," or "EMAIL"), the output file name (blank unless the output type is "FILE"), and a reference to a Report object for the report.

Return Value
True if the report run can continue, False to cancel the run.

Example
Here's an example that logs when a report is run.

Visual FoxPro

lparameters toApplication as SQApplication, tcReportName, ;
  tcOutputType, tcOutputFileName, toReport as Report
strtofile(tcReportName + ' started by ' + ;
  SQApplication.Users.UserName, 'reportlog.txt')
return .T.

VBScript
