Error:502 Invalid Text or Object Handle
Formulas.SetIndex(1) <PEGetHandleString-Formula Name>


I got the said error when i tried changing the value of my formula from Delphi 7.(Note that I'm using CRW 9.2.2, Delphi 7 and correct VCL).

Crpe1 is from TRCrpe, then i added the ff code in Delphi:
Crpe1.FormulaByName('Formula1').Formula.Text := 'Test';

That line caused the above error to appear. I tried executing Formulas.Count in delphi and was able to get the correct number of formulas in my report. I even tried to get the value of Formulas.IndexOf('Formula1'), and was able to get a value for this.

Pls help. Thanks.

Try it this way

Crpe1.Fomulas('Formula1').Text = 'Test';

There was a bug once in CR 9's API calls about formulas. As the VCL is only a wrapper around those calls you may want to install the hotfix listed in

Also, I could imagine that this formula syntax might throw an error as the Delphi's ' ' surrounding the word Text should not become part of the formula. So maybe to keep it easiest you could use a formula that outputs a number and set it to '1' in code instead
