Hi !

I have a report (rptTest) with a rtpTextbox called "Fullname". I want, from my VB project, assign the value of a variable called "sCustomerName" to the rptTextbox in my datareport.

I DON'T WANT to use the DataReport Connection object, just simply assign the value !

I've tried this but it doesn't work.
"rptTest.Sections(3).Controls(1).Item.Text = sCustomerName" where Controls(1).Item is the rptTextbox.

Couls anyone help me with providing some code ?

Thanks to all !

The Data Report's TextBox control is a data-bound control that can only display text from a database at run time.

You will thus have to make it a bound control by assigning values to the Data Member and Data Field properties.

You could try using the Label control instead and then assign the variable to the Caption property.

Regards.

try this:
rptTest.Sections(3).Controls("rptTextbox").Value = sCustomerName

Else, replace the textbox with a rptLabel, then use this code:

rptTest.Sections(3).Controls("lblMyLabel").Caption = sCustomerName

I use this al the time ! This works great!

U have to set a datasource for the entire DataReport, else nothing will work!
Just place a ADODC on a form and connect the DataReport to that!
