I have a TDBGrid with some data fields in it. Then I set the multiselect option to true in order to be able to choose several fields in the grid. And now, I want to tell QuickReport that he has to print a report I've previously created taking the data from the fields i have selected in the grid. How can I do that?
For Example: I have a grid with customers and I select 3 customers and I want my report (that prints the personal information of a customer) to print the information of only those 3 customers I have selected.

You should copy those selected records to another table attached to a datasource so you can switch quickreport to connect this datasource to print them.
Hope this helps.

You can browse the rows checking for selected ones with:

   if DBGrid.SelectedRows.CurrentRowSelected then
        // Some code here. i.e.:copy to your temp. table

Hi, I have tried what you told me and it haven't resolved my problem yet. Please write me down what I have to write (source code) to copy one by one the records I have selected in the DBGrid, because with CurrentRowSelected I only get then Current Record and I want them all (I can't find any help about this feature). Thanks very much.

- Suppose you have 3 selected records.

 Table.Open;
 Table.First;
 while (not Table.EOF) do
 begin
    if DBGrid.SelectedRows.CurrentRowSelected then
      // copy to your temp table
      // i.e.: TableTemp.Append;
      //       TableTempField1.Value:=Table1Field1.Value;
      //       TableTemp.Post;  
    Table.Next;
 end

You can also use bookmarks to avoid losing previous database pointer.
