Textbox containing a date expression changes in snapshots ?
Posted on 2008-06-20
My report contains a TextBox with an expression "=Now()" in the Page Header
in order to display the date and time the report was generated.
Now, when I open a snapshot of the report the value in the TextBox changes
to the current date and time, instead of preserving the value that was there
at the time the snapshot was generated.
I thought snapshots were static.
1. What exactly remains static for snapshots ?
2. Can or do parameters also change ? The reason I am asking is because I am
also displaying the paraemter values in the Page Header and I don't want
those values to change.
3. Is there a workaround ? I would like to preserve the date and time and I
don't want it to change every time someone generates the report from the
4. I also have two other textboxes on the Page Header which are VB.NET code expression which calculate dates. Will these change ?
Thank you for your help !
