Crystal Reports and custom objects question

I am brand new to using Crystal Reports and am trying to generate a report
based on a custom object - in another project. I have a layered design, with
all my business objects in a seperate project. I created a new project as
part of the solution, added a reference to the project containing my business
objects, created a datasource that points to one of the objects and then
tried to create CR based on the object. The data tab (in the CR wizzard)
refuses to 'see' the datasource I have set up. Does this mean that I have to
define the report in the same project as the class definition? If that is
so... that sure sucks!
Maybe I am just missing something... can someone point me in the right
direction?

Hi Terry,

Regarding on the Crystal reports specific issue, I would recommend you try
posting in the crystal reports community support site.

#Crystal Reports
http://technicalsupport.businessobje...ShowForum.aspx

Or for Crystal Reporsts Visual Studio issue, there has a dedicated group in
MSDN forum, you may find some useful information there:

#Crystal Reports for Visual Studio
http://forums.microsoft.com/msdn/sho...id=77&siteid=1

Thanks for your understanding!

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng

In .Net, how can I go about and set a Crystal Reports namespace? Right now they use the Root Namespace (VB) from the project. How can I extend the namespace for a single report (which will be set on all reports)? Thanks for any and all help, in advance :) Mythran

Hi, Just wondering what a good book is on visual studios 2008 ( or 2005 if no 2008 ) that teaches you how to properly use crystal reports with it.

Hello I am creating some crystal reports (for visual studio 2005) based on the content of certain .NET objects. I'm doing this in .NET 2.0. For one of them I'm using a Cross-table to summarize the information of a bunch of objects. The actual data is numeric. Since these reports are meant to be flexible number formatting must be configured as defined by the requirements. For example, sometimes the values will have to be rounded to 5...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
