Getting specific field in CrystalReports (shorthand)

Posted on 2003-11-25

Last Modified: 2010-05-01
Is there a shorthand method of doing similar to below...

Database.Tables.Item(1).Fields.Item(31).Value

Item 31 is the email field.  I want to specify the field name instead of doing a loop beforehand to get the item number (In case I add a field later).

Similar to rsRecordset("Email")

Which version and edition of CR?

Which method of displaying the report?  RDC?

This used to work but I think in the later versions it was deleted
Database.Tables.Item(1).Fields("Email ")

I'm using version 9 and RDC.

The Database.Tables.Item(1).Fields("Email ") doesn't work either...
