I have a VB form that display data in a datagrid and I want to give the user the option to print it.  How can I add the datagrid fields to the report designer? I don't want to recreate the connection all over  when I already have it on the display form.
Thanks,
Deen

Yes you can use the PrintGrid method I wrote and that Mika613 point you to but that doesn't use the DataReport.

To use the Datareport and to avoid binding it to a DataEnvironment, you could bind your report at runtime: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;190411&Product=vb6 and http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;289793&Product=vb6

Just to throw in my two cents since I use crystal reports and report on unconnected data all the time.  Create a report with XML data as your source.  You can dump the results of any datagrid to an XML file and then feed that into the report you created.  It's quit simple.
