VB DataReport object tips and instructions
Posted on 2002-03-08
I'm using the VB6 DataReport object with success in my database application for a while now but I need to add some more advanced features to my reports. I have all the basics down already, suchas passing criteria to the Command SQL string from a form, calculating fields etc. What I'd like to learn to add is:
1 - User selectable sort options from a form
2 - Printing the users criteria selections at the top of the report (i.e., date ranges, tec)
3 - Showing report generation progress with a progress bar
and so on.
Can anyone suggest a book I can pick up or a website I can reference where this type of stuff is expanded on? I have a lot of experience with Access' report engine and some experience with Crystal but I'd like to keep it all native to VB.
Thanks for any suggestions, even partial suggestions, in advance.
