Reading parameters lists from a text file


Hi All,

Using CR XI R2 with VB6 and external .rpt files - - - - -

In a VB6 app I use VB to loop through my tables to create dynamic parameter lists (CR XI is limited to the number of parameters it can create from the table). This works well but each time the user refreshes the report the same code is run to re-create the parameter list which is redundant and slows down the report(s).

Is it possible to manually create a series of text files - say each morning - and then read the parameter lists from the text file(s) at runtime instead of doing it on the fly each time?

Thanks in advance!
