VB 6 Data Report

How do i create a Data Environment Command that specifically obtain
a record in a database by matching a value (C0001) passed to it
during run-time? Thus the data report will then refer to this
datasource to display that particular record only.

For example a customer database has many customer numbers.
I created a form to display customer details. How do I specifically
call a report to print any ONE of the customer details.

For what its worth the data environment has more bugs than my old cat so I dont use it. Passing Parameters is a hit and miss affair.

Its really easy to create your own data environment.

Create a Class Called DataEnvObj.

Stick your own routines in it and you will have your own perfect DataEnv.

If you do want to use the data environment, you should add a command and then write a SQL string with a parameter. At run-time you can assign a value to this parameter and run the datareport. If you need an example, let me know...

set the properties of the command to be a SQL statement; something like the following:

select * from <tablename> where <field> = ?

The <tablename> is the name of the table in your database and the <field> is the field in the database that you want to query.

In the Parameters section of the command properties give the parameter a name and make sure that the data type is the set as the same type as the field.

In the code where you are going to show the datareport  use the following:

DataEnvironment1.Command1 frmForm1.lblCustomer1
DataReport1.Show

Where lblCustomer1 is a label on the form that is equal to what you want.

Please do not accept the proposed answer of bmscholl. He didn't add anything to the comments that were already given by me and jdhananjay. If you needed the extra info on the 'HOW TO' part, then accept jdhananjay's comment as answer.
