VS2005 CR2008: Selectiong Formula not working

Hi all,

I've created some reports using CR2008 which work just fine (the correct records are displayed) when I run them from the reports designer or when I pass the Selection Formula through code. If I set the parameters through code, then no filter is applied, and all records are displayed.

Does anyone faced this problem? Can someone suggest a solution?

Hope someone can help.

Best Regards,

Vítor Vieira

    Try using Inproc RAS SDK for adding or changing the record selection formula through code.

    Please try following code:

    // Load the report file for this sample from the file path indicated.

    string sampleReportPath = @"Path of the report";

    CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument rd = new CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument();


    // Access the ReportClientDocument API in-process using the ReportDocument class.

    ISCDReportClientDocument rcd = new ReportClientDocumentClass();

    rcd = rd.ReportClientDocument;

    // Create a FilterClass instance.

    Filter filter1 = new CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.DataDefModel.FilterClass();

    // Set the filter formula text using the FreeEditingText property.

    filter1.FreeEditingText = "{Customer.Last_Years_Sales} > 200000";

    // Use the Modify() method of the FilterControllerClass to apply the filter.


    // Set the report source of the Crystal Report viewer to the instance of the report.

    crystalReportViewer.ReportSource = rd;

    Hope this helps.
