  • 1. EInvalidPointer - Invalid Pointer Operation
    I'm using Rave BE 5.0.8. I use ADO datasets and RvDataSetConnections to get the data to the reports. I conditionally print areas of a main report dependent on if there are records in the dataset. There seems to be one very simple report that is causing a lot of problems. It sometimes throws an EInvalidPointer Exception, sometimes it just gives and access violation, sometimes it works fine. It is very frustrating. Here's a clipping from my code to execute that report: procedure TRave.ReportGen(Sender: TOjbect); begin with Sender as TBaseReport do begin rvCABS.SetParam('DateType','S'); rvCABS.ExecuteReport('rptMain'); if dsPayments.RecordCount > 0 then begin NewPage; --> rvCABS.ExecuteReport('rptPayments'); end; . . . end; end; All the rptPayments does is print a global page header section, page specific header information, a detail band from information in dsPayments (Description and Amount), then a report footer band with the total amount of payments. Thanks in advance, Paul Ramsperger
  • 2. Data Source Executing hundreds of times
    I have a Crystal report that has 3 Stored Procs as a DataSource. Running Each proc individually takes about 3 seconds total. THe report takes like 20 minutes to render. After running profiler, Crystal's executing each proc hundreds of times. I've used the visual linking expert to link unique ID's, but there's no performance gain at all. One of the procs is for non-repeating page header data. One is for a chart contained in the page header. The last is for data repeated in detail sections. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance. --ROBERT

    I have a report which I want to use as a basis for a new report. I have tried to copy and paste but this destroys the old report and leaves a non usuable of the copy. Is there a procedure by which I can copy the existing report to a different name and then be able to modify this copy of the original report? Lloyd Sheen

Respected Sir / Madam,
 I am working as  a softwareprofessional with core MicroSoft Technologies.

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,
