You can accomplish this in a variety of ways, depending on the type of report you are using.
You can also create a shared data source if you use the same one for many reports. For information on how to perform these tasks, see Work with Data in the How To section.
For more information on each item in the associated dialogs, see Data Sources and Datasets in the Concepts section. For more advanced ways to connect data, see the Walkthroughs section for step by step instructions on using Reports with Stored Procedures , or creating a Custom Data Provider. You can also use code to create an unbound data source or to change the data source at run time. For more information on all of these methods of binding reports to data, see Work with Data in the Section Report How To section.
Add an ActiveReports application to a Project ActiveReports provides an in-built sample application that includes a report template along with the Viewer control. You learnt about creating a report and viewing it in the preceding sections.
With this Windows Forms application you only need to create a report layout and run the application to view the report, effectively skipping the manual process of adding a Viewer and template separately and creating an instance of the report. In the New Project dialog that appears, under your desired language VB. NET or C , click the Reporting node. The selected report type is added to your project. Notice that the Viewer control already appears on the form.
Note: If you run the application right after the new report project is created, a blank report appears on the Form. Add Fields in Reports Fields provide data to display on a report page. ActiveReports has two types of fields; a bound or database field and a calculated field. Bound or Database field: A field where the value is returned by a query. Calculated field: A field where the value is an expression created with functions, formulas and operators. Use the following instructions to add calculated fields in a report.
The following steps guide you through the process. In the Report Explorer , expand the Fields node. Right-click the Calculated node and select Add. This action creates an unbound field with a default name like field1.
In the Report Explorer, with field1 selected, go to the Properties Window and set a value for the field in the Formula property. For e. You can change the name of the field in the Name property. Drag the field from the Calculated node onto the detail section of the report. This action creates a TextBox object, and sets its DataField property to the name of the calculated field. See Add Field Expressions for more information.
To create a calculated field, you can add the new field in the DataSet dialog. Note: These steps assume that you have added a DataSet in your report. See Add a Dataset for further information. In the Report Explorer , right-click the data set node and select Edit.
Under Name, enter the name of the field. By default it appears as Field1. In the Expression Editor dialog, create an expression you want to use as the value for the calculated field.
See Expressions for further information. From the Report Explorer, drag the calculated field from that now appears as a field under the DataSet node onto the design surface. This action creates a TextBox object, and sets its Value property to the name of the calculated field expression. See Also.
