Hi there,

My Environment is VS.NET 2002 (VB.NET) and Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET

I want to know if it is possible to dynamically add Text Objects at runtime to a Crystal Report. I already know how to populate existing Text Objects, but I want to explore this more fully.

I have already read the material at this link: http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2012549.asp , but I don't think it applies to my version of Crystal Reports - Correct me if I'm wrong.

I look forward to hearing from you.

NO... With the version that comes with .Net , you CAN NOT add/delete any textbox, any data field at run time.

you would have to use "Crytal Enterprise 9 Report Application Server" or "Crystal Enterprise Embedded 10", as it is called in teh latest version, for this. this might mean you have to buy crystal reports 10 advanced to get this to work.
