I don't think that you can add or remove controls at runtime but what you can do is dynamicaly bind a report to a recordset and through code change the caption of the labels on your report.

eg.

Set rptTest.DataSource = rsEmp

rptTest.Sections(1).Controls(1).Caption = "Employee activities for given time period."
   
    rptTest.Sections(3).Controls(1).DataField = "empName"
    rptTest.Sections(3).Controls(2).DataField = "pTitle"
    rptTest.Sections(3).Controls(3).DataField = "wDate"
    rptTest.Sections(3).Controls(4).DataField = "wDesc"

rptTest.Show
rptTest.PrintReport

---------------------------------------

You just have to set the datafield property of the control = to a field in the recordset.

Thanks for your answer....

If the initial recordset has two fields and the NEXT binding recordset has 4 fields, Do I get the 2 additional fields into the DataReport?

Do you want to use 2 recordsets on the same report?

More or less... I want to create a "Model" Report to share with many recordsets.

Create your report with the maximum number of controls you will need and then using the code above you can change the data field property of the textboxes, captions of labels, and the visible property of controls you don't need.  Give this a shot and let me know if you need anymore help or if anything isn't clear.
