Error description

  • On an active report there is a new Data List object introduced
    since CA 11.0.3. On selecting the List column title and
    clicking on Properties in the Authoring page, there is Label
    object under DATA ITEM. When any text is specified (e.g. TEST),
    then the design page shows that the column header name changes
    to TEST but when you run the same active report then output
    still shows the same Name and not what is specified in the
    Label. This is not the case with List report and works as
    designed.
    
    However, for the same List column title object selected there
    is a property under GENERAL section named Override label. When
    it is changed to Yes and Label is defined to lets say TEST,
    then the design page shows that the column header name changes
    to TEST as well as the report output contains proper label as
    TEST.
    

Local fix

  • Workaround is to change Override label option to Yes in the
    general section of the properties & then specify the Label below
    it.
