With the advent of Analytics Workbooks and the N/query module, NetSuite has also added a method for rendering your query results within your PDF templates. Let’s say you have a function to define your query, like so:
Notice we don’t actually run the query; we just create the
Query instance. From there, we can leverage a
TemplateRenderer from the
N/render module and its
addQuery() method, like so:
./custom-query.ftl (our custom template) contains a section like this:
templateName we specify in
addQuery() is the same variable name we use within our template to access the query results; in our example, that’s
individuals. From there, we can loop through (
#list) the results, and we access values from individual columns with Array indexes (e.g.
ind). The order of the columns in the template is the same order in which they were defined when we created the Query.
Combining all those components renders a PDF like so:
This is an example from the Rendering PDFs with SuiteScript Cookbook.
