hello everyone,

i m doing a jasper report wherein i have 2 textfields ,out of 1 field (x) have some textfield expression say sun of two parameters and another field (y) have a java class function which accepts this sum for further work
now i want to pass x fields value/ output to y field's java fucntion as a parameter
but i m unable to do so, i googled for same but no any relevant result i found
i cant access x field as parameter to y field as it dont have any id or name.

i tried by taking one customized field(n) and assigned x value to this n field and then passed this n field to y field's expression, but when i compiled i got error like:
no column name n found......and its obvious coz the fields came in report are from query

so will anybody help me on this probelm?

do reply plz..its urgent one

Have you tried using iReport Designer or Jasper Wave for Jasper. Try using the expression itself as the parameter. Please have a look at this tutorial ( as well.

But data needs to come from somewhere. Why will you use it otherwise? I don't think you can do this. You can reference Fields $F{ or variables $V{ while constructing an expression.

its needs a variable.... see ..Get the sum or whatever u r expression result in some variable called variable1 and display in textfield(x) and after that use this variable as a parameter to the java class function which is for u r second textfield(y)... and after that it gave any error then check the data type or variable expression.
