I have a Customer Service form in Delphi that has a tcxgrid component called Parts that I want to print on the Customer Service form via Rave Report. I have been able to add datatext components and such but this it the first time I am adding a 'table' in the form that I want to print as well. I created a dataview called dvParts and it keeps the dataset active. I added a region and placed a databand but just dont know where to go from there... properties, etc. How do I tell it what fields I want printed, etc.  Thanks for your help!

Take a look at these Rave Report tutorials:

Especially at the third link - it describes creating data aware reports. Don't miss the sample code in the end of the article:

I believe a DataBand 'cycles' through all the records in the dataset to display the table much like a DBGrid -- this seems to be what you're after. Then add DataTexts to it and set them to the the dataview and datafield that you want. Also set the DataBand to the dataview you want.
For your column headings, they must go in a band above the databand, and set the band as a 'header' - and there are settings about whether the heading should appear again at the top of every page, or must it appear 'once off'.

I hope this helps
