Greetings,

I am very new to C# and Crystal Reports.  I would like to display data in a Crystal Reports report that is the result of a SQL query. Additionally, I may have to massage some data before it is displayed (i.e. one field is an operation number, I want to add "Operation" to it.  Also add a line to the end of each row were initials will be added by hand later).

I am using the ReportPreview and the version of CR included with Visual Studio.

I understand how to add a static value:
TextObject preOrderNumb = TravelerReport.ReportDefinition.ReportObjects["txtOrderNumb"] as TextObject;
preOrderNumb.Text = "MyText";

But I'm not sure how do add the objects dynamically and assign my sql query values.  I have also investigated creating a custom dataset but have not had much success.

Thank you, in advance.

If you are doing this in the application simply assign values from the query as

preOrderNumb.Text = SomeQueryField

Except how do I create more labels?  My sql query is returning a unknown amount of results. Each result represents an Operation. The query returns the Operation number, Setup Hours, Run Hours and End Time (These are the headers).

So in essence I have a set of data from my SQL query and I need to display each set of results under each heading.
Operation    Run Hours    Setup Hours   End Time    Initials
Op 1               5                     9                   Jan 5       _____
Op 2               2                     3                   Jan 8       _____

I have googled this to death - I see that I can link a report to a dataset based on tables - but I have to massage the data first. Not to mention the fact that I am using some dynamically created tables as well as some complex sql statements.

Is there a way to loop through my sql results and feed them into the crystal report modifying data as neded (adding the underscores/Lines, formatting datetime etc).

I don't think you can in the version included with VS.Net.

Ok, thanks - I think i figured out a solution. I'm going to create a separate table, load my results and modified data into it and connect that table to the report. And if that doesn't work, I'll get the full version.
