Maby could be done with a new dataset, then add that database to the crystal report. Don't know how to do that just sounded like an idea lol.

mlmcc will it mess up a report that already has a dataset binding to it, or can you have more than 1 dataset on a report?

>>or can you have more than 1 dataset on a report

A report can only have one dataset but a dataset can contains many unrelated tables.

So I would add the textbox.text to the dataset, and then place it onto the report somehow.

You dont need to use datasets to pass a text value to the report. Use a parameter. Here is a tutorial
