Hello everybody,

   I want to create a simple data report for a simple VB program. I have followed the exact steps as described on
but can't get my report to work. My report is blank. Am I missing something ? Any help would be appreciated.

P.S : This is urgent !

    Can you post your code for the report?

    As I described above, the only piece of coding I did was to show the report. PatRpt.Show. the  rest was the configuration according to the above article. Is there any property that I have to use. I am using MS Access 2003 with MS Jet 4.0 OLE DB provider. When I do the test connection I can connect to the database.

    Thanks ,
