For my program in Delphi I need to make about 50 reports. I think it's best to make them in ReportSmith 3.0. Though I can not work with it. How can I use reports in my Delphi program and can I give variables to my report.
Example: Report for all students with a group the user can choose
Database : Name Groep Lastname Result
             Tom Fr04  De Decker  5
             Stijn Fr03 De Decker 4
            Jens  Fr04  De Decker 5
            Gordian Fr04 Vermarien 2
I need to make a report of all students who are in group Fr04 and have at least 5 and of all students who are in group Fr03. The groups should be variabels to the report
1 report for all groups. is this possible? Can I give variables from my delphi program to my report??
HOW??? Please Help Me It's urgent!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You'll get good points
:) Thanx to anybody wwho wants to help me with a FULL explanation.

First of all I should tell you that it's much more easier
using TQuery instead of ReportSmith, but anyway, here you go:
- In order to get that report you first access ReportSmith and
 select the table you want from the Tables section.
- Then you go to Report Variables tab and define your two
 variables which would be Group1 (to chose the first group
 you want the students result to be greater or equal than 5)
 and Group2 (for the students who are in Fr03 in your example).
- Now you go to Selections and set the selection criteria, that
in your case, it would look something like this:

 . Include records in the report where 'any' of the following    aply
   1. 'all' of the following aply
     1.1. 'datafield' 'table1.Group' 'is equal to' 'report            variable' 'Var1'
     1.2. 'datafield' 'table1.Result' 'is greater than or equal            to' 'number' 5
   2. 'datafield' 'table1.Group' 'is equal to' 'report variable'       'Var2'

- Once you have all this set, you save the report and then access ReportSmith component property InitialValues, where you can set by code the variables you want to pass.
i.e.
Report1.InitialValues.Add('Var1=<'+YourSelectedGroup1+'>');
Report1.InitialValues.Add('Var2=<'+YourSelectedGroup2+'>');
Report1.Run;

Hope this helps
