The refresh button only functions if you also add the login credentials for the database. The report that you are viewing contains only the data from the day you when you created the report.

To enable the report to also update the data when you press the refresh button you can use the following code:

Private Sub ReportViewer_RefreshButtonClicked(UseDefault As Boolean)
'To refresh the data you MUST login first!
Dim CRXTable As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable
For Each CRXTable In m_Report.Database.Tables
   CRXTable.SetLogOnInfo Servername, "Database", UserName, Password
Next
End Sub

Happy Coding!

Is the data saved with the report?

Open the report
Click FILE
Ensure SAVE DATA WITH REPORT is not checked.

Or
Add a line

crRpt.DiscardSavedData to the VB program.

Replace crRpt with your report object
