Hello,

I have used crystal reports a little bit, but I am totally new to Telerik Reporting. I have successfully created a report with a sub report, but I need help with how to do something. I am basically creating a receipt, but instead of each item being repeated as text, the item will be displayed as a certificate. Basically, the customer can purchase one set of different types of certificates. Each set can have a different amount of certificates. Some certificates have 2 per package and some can have 5. I have successfully created a report that displays the customer address information and summary information. I have also created a sub report in that report that gets each item the customer purchased and uses an image as the background with text over the top to be printed out to create the certificate. So if they purchased two sets of certificate it will display two certificates currently. What I haven't been able to figure out is how to repeate the certificate in the report to match the number of certificates that come in a package. I do get the value telling me how many certificates come per package, I just don't know how to use it to repeat the output. Is that possible? If so, how can I make that happen?

I hope I have explained this clearly. I am not always the best at explaining things.

Thank you.

Ben

I was able to resolve the issue by using an object data source and making the necessary manipulation of the data in there. It displays well in the design viewer but not on the page, but I think that would be off topic so I will create a new thread.

Thank you for your help.
