3 Identical Reports (almost)

Hi Folks,

I have a report for which I need three copies - identical in every way
except each contains a label (lets call it 'lblReportInsta nce') with a
caption saying "Part 1", "Part 2" and "Part 3" respectively.

At the moment I have 3 separate reports that I run sequentially and output
as snapshot files. Can someone suggest a swifter method?

Create a new single field (ReportInstance ) table (tblReportInsta nce) with 3
records containing "Part 1", "Part 2" and "Part 3".

Add this table to the recordsource of the report with no joins to any other
tables. Add ReportInstance from this table as a field in the recordsource.
Add a new textbox to you report and bind it to ReportInstance.

Because ReportInstance has been added to the recordsource and Access cannot
determine any logical relationship between ReportInstance and any other field in
the RS, it will return one row for each record in tblReportInstan ce. The only
difference between these records will be the value of ReportInstance.
Therefore the report will print 3 pages per record labelled "Part 1", "Part 2"
and "Part 3".

I have a transaction log file where the DataSet table's Description column is actually delimited into "subcolumns" based upon the transaction id. I would like to parse these into separate fields for reporting purposes and am wondering if anyone knows if this is easily accomplished using the .NET version of Crystal Reports? For example, the description column may be reporting on a dataentry error as follows: TXNCODE: 1010001

I have 2 reports that are almost the same one is for internal use and the other is for the customer. The Internal report has a few extra fields then the customer report.

Both reports the user has to put the customer code in for the report. How can I get this so that when they want both reports they just...

We have a database that reads in and formats raw data. We were using queries to format the data per person and outputing reports. The other database has the persons personal information.

NOW they want the reports to be displayed as a new tab in the forms. I am not...

Hi everyone. Windows XP Pro/Access2000/2.4gig chip/512meg RAM/200GigDrive. I'm stumped. I've been involved in other things lately, but came back to the program I'm preparing and zipped into a report and it took FOREVER to load and run (well, about 12 seconds, which SEEMED like "forever"). I'm almost sure it didn't do this before I took my break--can reports get upset at you if you leave them alone?

Hi, Looking at reporting tools and was wondering if anyone else has gone thru this. Crystal seems rediculously expensive once you take into account licensing, while Active is runtime-free meaning only developer licenses. On a cost only basis, it seems pretty obvious but what about feature wise. I simply do not have enough time to do a drawn-out analysis and was wondering if anyone else had. Regards

We are evaluating the prospect of integrating and/or using Crystal Reports with some of our current products. Some of these are still in Access 97 and are running well. Since we cannot include the report wizard in a runtime environment, we are looking at ad hoc report writers like Crystal. Can we include Crystal with our runtimes and/or is there another report writer that we should be looking at? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I am currently using ASP.Net 2003 and will be upgrading to 2005 sometime in the near future. I have been having issues with using Crystal Reports that were included with .Net to handle my reporting needs. I was wondering if anybody has an opinion on how the new reportViewer control works in comparison to Crystal. One of the main problems I have been having with Crystal Reports is that they seem to load very slow no matter how small the...

I have two pages. Both of them are supposed to have one table on it with a fixed header. Both pages were tested in IE6. Structurally they are identical. Both have a <divthat wraps a <tablethat has a <theadand a <tbody>. In the first example, the <theadstays fixed at the top of the div as it scrolls. In the second example the <theadscrolls away. Could anyone tell me what about the second page makes it not work? Thanks Luminari

Hi, I have 2 vendor libraries. One is for transmitting, the other receiving data. Virtually all of the functions in either lib are almost exactly alike in the way they're called. The only external difference is the name has an "R" or an "S" in it. ex fooSGetBytes(bufa, buftemp); fooRGetBytes(bufa, buftemp);
