Hi Experts,

    I am pretty new to Crystal Reports.  I have an ASP.NET form that shows a Crystal Reports XI form.  I used an XML file of the actual database schema durring the development of the Report document.  At run time, from code, I pass the report data dynamically in a .NET DataSource to give it the data.  When I execute the code, the viewer shows the correct information in the web site.  However, when I go to print it, it will only print out the original data that I used (weeks ago) to create the report.  That data doesn't even exist in the database anymore.  It's like the report saved the original XML data in itself, and even though I pass it new data, it still uses the old data it got  from the XML file instead of using the datasource I pass it.  But once again, ihe viewer shows the correct data...it just prints the old stuff....I don't get it...  PLEASE HELP!!

Attached is i how I load the report!

Thanks,

DataSet invoiceDataDS = DataAccess.GetInvoiceData(12);
 
CrystalReportSource1.ReportDocument.SetDataSource(invoiceDataDS);
 
CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = CrystalReportSource1;
 
CrystalReportViewer1.PrintMode = CrystalDecisions.Web.PrintMode.Pdf;
 
CrystalReportViewer1.DisplayGroupTree = false;
 
mvReport.SetActiveView(vwReport);

The 1st thing you can try is unchecking 'Save Data with Report' on the File menu. This should stop the old data showing.

Let me know if this still doesn't display the new data
