Report Smith 2.5.2

I am working with Delphi 1 and Report Smith 2.5.2. I want to use a report witch contains a lot of report variables.

The problem is that I can run the report within Report Smith but when I start the report from Delphi the strange thing happens that only Run-time Report Smith is started but my report is not being loaded.

Then I noticed that when I removed the initialisation lines in my source code for the report variables, run-time Report smith does load my report.

I also tested this form in Report Smith 3 and I had no problems.

Is this a bug in Report Smith ? What can I do ?

Greetings,
Maurice Maas, Holland

Yes, it is bug in ReportSmith. Here is some buffer
limit of report variables, that can be transfered to ReportSmith.
You can check out line by line in Params and get this limit when ReportSmith starts to work.
Alternate way is to give variables is to use ini file where you write
values from Delphi before calling Reportsmith and read them by report macro after loading Reportsmith.
There is not limits.
