I want to create a report using a query whose SQL property will be specified at runtime. What should i specify in the datafield properties of the qrdbtext fields at design time. Or should I assign the properties at runtime, and if so, how do I link the data fields and the query fields?

If you know the name of the fields that will be used but not the condition Where.

You create a persistent fields clicking right button over the Tquery componenent and then Add All fields, now you connect the QuickReport with the query and all the fields are availables.(The Query will be Active = True) for this purpose.

The Tquery component must have text in the strings property for example:
Select MyField1, Myfield2...
From MyTable;


In order to have the fields for your report.

Then this string will be override after your Where condition.

something like this:
Tquery1.Sql.Clear;
Tquery1.Sql.Add('Select x,x,x,x where xxxx from xxxx');
Tqyery1.Open;

cheers.

Hi marcoszorrilla
In my query's sql statement i want to include the 'sum' function, together with other fields, The sum is from a seperate table from the table with the other fields. But I am getting the error "You tried to execute a query that does not include the expression 'field name' as part of an aggregate function" where field name is one of the fields, when i try to add the fields in the query's fields editor. Please help
