Create Dynamic reports


Post Author: Thomas Gyllencreutz

CA Forum: Crystal Reports

Hi!In Crystal Reports 8.5 there is 2 functions AddTextObject and AddFieldObject that allows me to add objects on-the-fly on a blank report. I cant find these methods anywhere in Business Objects XI Release 2. Is there another way of adding objects text and field objects at runtime?The problem is that I dont know what data the dataset will contain at design-time. The dataset is filled with data based on a user created SQL string and the user is allowed to decide what outpfileds they want in the report. And the final thing is to generate a report that they can preview and maybe print/export to pdf or whatever they wanna do with it.I have scanned the forum and web and found lots of articles that describes almost everything but this problem. Any suggestions what to do?Im using: Visual Studio 2005Business Objects XI R2The solution has to be 100% VB .NET (no activex components)The application is a Client application (no serverside generated reports)RegardsThomas Gyllencreutz
