Hi,

Is it possible to load data from a text file to the telerik report?

Currently we have an external source of data coming from a text file. it is already formatted the way client wants to display on their end.

What we want to do is, we load the entire data to the telerik report without doing much data formatting and layout adjustment.

Is this possible on telerik reporting by setting the datasource to the textfile?

Thanks,

Hello Dondon,

You could consider using a CsvDataSource, as explained in this help article.

If the text file provided by your clients is not suitable to be used as a CSV Source, you could use an ObjectDataSource. In this case it would be necessary to fetch the data from the text file, map it to a suitable data model, and assign the DataSource and DataMember property of the ObjectDataSource accordingly, as explained in this collection of articles.
