Editing a Crystal Reports Report?

P: n/a
Hello,

I was provided a .rpt file which is Crystal Reports report.

It opened with VS .NET 2003.

On the left side in the Field Explorer - there are seveal categories

- Database Fields
- Formula Fields
- Parameter Fields
- Group Name Fields
- Running Totals Field
- SQL Expression
- Special Fields
- Unbound Fields

Currently this report runs with a call tracking database. I was asked
to see if it was possible to edit this .rpt file so it showed all
calls instead of just the un-closed ones.

I checked in the Formula Field category and there is a list of fields
with red check marks against them. One of them is 'Closed' - I
thought if I could uncheck that and resave the report it might work.
However, I cannot uncheck it. I right click on it and it reveals
someoptions - one of them being edit. But selecting it does nothing.

Am I able to edit a Crystal Report .rpt file with VS .NET 2003?

Thanks,

Tmuld

Well, just off the top of my head, I would say open the report, go to the
Crystal Reports menu in Visual Studio, select Report|Selection
Formula|Record and see if there is a hard coded formula for pulling the
data, if not, check the group area also in that menu path.

If neither of these have a formula, do a search in the project calling the
report for the .SelectionFormula and edit the string for pulling the
information.

Hope this helps

Hello!

Thanks for the site recommendation - so far this are pretty good in
setting this up. But I have some issues.

This line:

1) Private crReportDocument As ReportDocument

ReportDocument always has a blue squiggle under it - the namespaces
were added -

(Imports CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine
Imports CrystalDecisions.Shared
Imports CrystalDecisions.ReportSource)

but give s a Type 'ReportDocument' not defined. Nothing found in the
dropdown close to it.

and the line above -Private crParameterFields As ParameterFields
works fine.

Also all the me.<item have a blue squiggle under me. - I put this
before the page load - same issue.

Suggestions?

Thanks,

Tmuld
