Using Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .
On my form, I can show a crystal report showing lets say a customer list. The data on the report comes from a stored procedure which was set up when the report was designed. This all works fine.
I was wondering if there was a way I could use the same report but dynamically use a different datasource....
On my form I would like to filter the customer list and have the report based on the filtered data, rather than the stored proc (which shows all the customers).
To filter the data, I am using ds.Tables.DefaultView.RowFilter = "countryID = FR";
But this returns a dataView. Not a dataTable. Can I send a dataview to the crystal report as a ddatasource?
When I did try and send a dataTable as the reports data source, it did not work.
Here was my code for setting the dataSource
ReportDocument rep = new ReportDocument();
rep.Load(Globals.pathToCrystalReports + reportName);
rep.SetDataSource(_ds.Tables); // Error Here ********
The error message is:
An unhandled exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in mscorlib.dll
Additional information: Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI
Perhaps this cannot be done ???
