Data Reports

I am trying to use VB6 Data Report, I want to group three different fields from a Stored Procedure. I tried to insert 3 Group Header/Footer and then placed each field respectively in each group header. I got the error "Report Sections do not match Data Source". How can I get my report to group the data I need and display properly? (The report works fine with no Group Header/Footer present) Any examples would be great. Thanks

In this case you should use SHAPE command to get Hierachical Recordset then set parent recordsets to Group Headers & Footers, set child recordset to Detail. SHAPE command require Provider=MSDataShape in connection string. What kind of DB you are using???

This is an example which is used to create a data report based on 3 command(Command 1,Command 2 & Command3)

using the same table to be grouped by two group header (Year & Class) in DataEnvironment.

Command1(Group By Year-First)->Parent

General Tab
Command Name : Command1
Connection : Database Location
Sql Statement : SELECT [year],[date] FROM Admission WHERE [date] = VDate GROUP BY [year],[date]

Parameter Tab
Name : Vdate
Direction : Input
Data Type : AdDate
Host Data Type : Date(VT_Date)

Command2(Group By Class-Second)->First Child

General Tab
Command Name : Command2
Connection : Database Location
Sql Statement : SELECT [class],[year],date] FROM Admission WHERE [date] = VDate Group By [class],[year],

[date]

Parameter Tab
Name : Vdate
Direction : Input
Data Type : AdDate
Host Data Type : Date(VT_Date)

Relation Tab
Relate to a parent command object
Parent command : Command1
In Relation definition : Link year(Parent Field) to year(Child Field) & date(Parent Field) to VDate(Child

Field).

Command3(Display the information in detail section based on user criteria)->Second Child

General Tab
Command Name : Command3
Connection : Database Location
Sql Statement : SELECT * FROM Admission WHERE [date] = VDate

Parameter Tab
Name : Vdate
Direction : Input
Data Type : AdDate
Host Data Type : Date(VT_Date)

Relation Tab
Relate to a parent command object
Parent command : Command2
In Relation definition : Link year(Parent Field) to year(Child Field),class(Parent Field) to class(Child

Field) & date(Parent Field) to VDate(Child Field).

Report Form
Name : Report

Private Sub AdmissionRpt_Click()
DataEnvironment1.command1 adate.Value
DataReport1.Show
End Sub

Note : adate is a date variable extracted from datetimepicker control.

Hope that it will help u.
