You cant  change the query in Crytstal reports apart from the where clause.

Its in the documentation.

What you should be doing is changing the selection formula.


like this

MyReport.ReplaceSelcetionFormula=""

MYReport.ReplaceSelectionFormula ("{Q_ViewStockTransactions.Type} = 'Sale')

If you want to pass a variable

MyReport.ReplaceSelectionFormula ("{Q_ViewStockTransactions.Type} = '" & SelectOptions & "'")

Set up the selection formula that works in the designer and copy it is a good starting point.

This is absolutely the right way to do it.

OK!

I assume you are using the Crystal Report Designer to design a report.

Design your report without any selection.

Now from the Report Menu choose Select Expert.

Select a field

Now Click Show Formula

Now you will see the formula building.

Now copy the formula by highlighting it and using Ctrl+C.

Example: {Label_Temp.Label} = "Voodoo"

Now remember to change the quotes like this so VB can use


Change to {Label_Temp.Label} = 'Voodoo'

Using the Code I have given You paste in the selection Criteria

MyReport.ReplaceSelectionFormula ("Put Your Selection Formula between these quotes")


To get something like this:
MyReport.ReplaceSelectionFormula ("{Label_Temp.Label} = 'Voodoo'")

When you have this working you can start to change the Select string with your variables.

Also always remember when you save your report in the designer to make sure that the 'Save Data with Report' is not selected.

Good Luck
