  • 3. Modifying Report object using a sub/function -- basic ??
    Hello Guru's I have a simple question... I created a couple of reports based on a single dsr cr8 file... I was able to modify all text/fields objects. The problem that I'm having is that I want to create a sub in vb6 to modify each field based on the parameter passed.. for example: VB6/CR8 *** THIS IS WHAT I HAVE ***** CASE "REPORT 1" SETTEXT0 "TEST" SETTEXT1 "TEST" SETTEXT2.SUPRESS = TRUE CASE "REPORT 2" SETTEXT0 "1234" SETTEXT1 "5678" SETTEXT2.SUPPRESS = FALSE CASE "REPORT 3" SETTEXT0 "9102" SETTEXT1 "12548" SETTEXT2.SUPPRESS = TRUE THIS IS WHAT I WANT CASE "REPORT2" CALL subCrcControl (SETTEXT0, "123") CALL subCrcControl (SETTEXT1, "456") CASE "REPORT3" CALL subCrcControl (SETTEXT0, "789") CALL subCrcControl (SETTEXT1, "147") CASE "REPORT4" CALL subCrcControl (SETTEXT0, "258") CALL subCrcControl (SETTEXT1, "369") SUB subCrcControl (FIELD_NAME AS OBJECT, STRTEXT AS STRING) with crControl .setText STRTEXT ***************** MORE SETTINGS ******** end with END SUB The Problem I'm having is that I don't know how to declare the cr field/text object... no matter what type I use I get a mismatch error Thank you Alex
  • 4. distinctcount adding 1 - help
    I'm pretty new to this. I'm trying to do a distinct count on a string field - it's a count of consultants grouped by their pharmacy. Background - first I need to get just the consultants that sent data during a certain time period. The formula, called Consultant Count, is IF MONTH ({GETTRANSCOMPLDATA.LAPTOP_EXPORT_DTS}) = MONTH ({?STARTDATE}) THEN {GETTRANSCOMPLDATA.CONSULTANT_NM} ELSE "" Then, I use that formula in my distinct count statement - DistinctCount ({@Consultant Count}, {GETTRANSCOMPLDATA.NABP_CODE}) The 1st formula is suppressed, but if I show it, it comes back listing just one name; the distinct count, however, comes back counting 2. It doesn't matter if it's listing 1 or 10 names, in the count it's always +1. Anyone with info as to the whys & hows to fix would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

comes along with the .Net 2003 package for my Reporting Purpose. I have a 
problem in printing the reports when it comes to printing it in a Custom 
Paper size. The paper size that i use is  10in x 12in. I have set the paper 
size in the printer using the server properties in the Control panel. I am 
not able to set the paper size in the coding part as we usually do using the 

It shows only the Names of the paper that it supports. how to i Set the 
paper size to 10in x 12in.  Everytime otherwise i have to go to the Advanced 
properties in the print dialog box ,that pops up when we click the print 
button in the viewer, set the paper size which is defaulted to Letter and 
then print it. 

I would be really GRATEFUL if any of u can help me out in this problem.

5.Printing on a Custom Paper Size


I want to programatically set the paper size of a print document. I created 
a class that inherits PrintDocument, so I can print some database records on 
8" x 10" paper.

I added this line to my class constructor:

Dim customPaperSize As New Printing.PaperSize("8x10", 800, 1000)

But now I am looking for the proper code lines so that any instance of my 
class sends the proper size information to the printer, without user 
intervention. How do I do it with VB.NET (with .NET 2.0)?

Thank you in advance,
