CrystalReports RAS SDK in Java: Question regarding ResultFields.

49 Views

Hello,

I'm working with the RAS and open a Crystal Report. I have a question regading the DataDefControler in the ReportClientDocument.

What is the exact semantics for the ResultFields?

My assumption was that the ResultFields container shows all fields that are used in the Crystal Reports report definition.

When I look through the Crystal Report documents I often find reports where no DatabaseField is shown in the ResultFields list.

In other Crystal Report documents I find DatabaseFields in ResultFields.

At the moment I do not understand the systematics.

When I look in the Field Explorer in Crystal Reports 2008 I see the list of Database Fields and

I find a check mark at some of the fields.

I think those fields are flagged that are used in the Report definition. Is this true?

Here an example:

The sample report Comparative Income Statement in folder Demonstration

shows 7 of the 9 DB fields flagged in Field Explorer.

 flagged: variance_xtab.Account_Type 
 flagged: variance_xtab.Account_Heading_Name 
 flagged: variance_xtab.Account_Name 
!flagged: variance_xtab.Account_Number 
 flagged: variance_xtab.Type 
 flagged: variance_xtab.Month 
 flagged: variance_xtab.Year 
 flagged: variance_xtab.Amount 
!flagged: variance_xtab.Internal_ID 

When read the Crystal Report document with the RAS SDK I do not see any of the DB fields in the ResultFields (see listing below).

This is what I do not understand.

Hope my question makes sense and you can help me.

Thanks,

Bernd
