Sir, I don't have words to thank u 4 your very smart search object.
U must be pleased to know that I am using it dynamically

dw_1.dataobject = szDatawindowObject
string ls_coltype, ls_colname
long IJK
for ijk = 1 to Long(dw_1.Describe('datawindow.column.count'))
       ls_colname = dw_1.Describe('#'+string(ijk)+'.Name')
    ls_coltype = Lower(Left(dw_1.Describe(ls_colname + ".ColType"),4))
    //if pos('chardatenumblongintdecireal',ls_coltype) < 0 then return

This single coding works for all the reports (more than thousand).
