DataReport - very easy question

Hello,

I want to print a DataReport, but the data that is printed there is NOT taken from a DB. Therefore, I don't have to specify DataSource and DataMember. However, VB requires it. How can I do that?

PS: This program doesn't use any DB file.
Please answer ASAP.

Thanks.

In order to do that I need a DataBase file, don't I? But I don't have any DB file. Any more suggestions?

You don't need a database. You can create a new recordset object and fill it without any database.

dim x as new adodb.recordset

with x
   .cursorlocation = aduseclient
   .cursortype = adopenstatic
   .locktype = adlockbatchoptimistic
   with .fields
      .append "F1", adinteger
      .append "F2", advarchar, 40
   end with
   .open

   .addnew
   .fields("F1").value = 1
   .fields("F2").value = "value 1"
   .update

   .addnew
   .fields("F1").value = 2
   .fields("F2").value = "value 2"
   .update
end with

Very good and helpful answer. Thanks.
I would use something shorter:

    ' Create a temporary Recordset
    Dim TempRS As New ADODB.Recordset
    With TempRS
        .CursorLocation = adUseClient
        .CursorType = adOpenStatic
        .LockType = adLockBatchOptimistic
        .Fields.Append "F1", adInteger
        .Open
    End With
    Set DataReport1.DataSource = TempRS

Thanks again.
