how to correct the line like
    Public Overrides Function LoadReportData(GenText As Boolean) As Integer
...

Open in new window


due to this error?

Then the method in the base class has a different signature. Check the data types of the return value and parameters.

Check signature of LoadReportData in base class, your override should match exactly in terms of parameters, your line is right, its just you have to make sure yours parameters are right
