Hi ,

While creating a report, for Purchase order specifically, i want the header part of the report (company particulars) from a different table, how do i link this to a data source created for the company details to the header, when trying to add fields from the DATA EXPLORER to a textbox, it is showing error that the report is linked to another data source( which is my primary data source which has the purchase order no, date etc.,)

Regards,
Jai

Hi Jai,

Currently only one DataSource per report item is allowed. Although to accomplish your goal you have several options:
  • Use report items that can be databound - you can put your detail content in a Table, Crosstab or List, bound to a property of your primary data source. In this case the contents of your report header will also be properties in the DataSource
  • Add the header content (company particulars) to your primary dataset and use data filtering to split the data you need for the details and for the header.
  • Use SubReport to show your header content - that means you will need another report just to hold a relatively small amount of data. 

I hope that helps.

Have you tried the new visualization options in Telerik Reporting Q2 2013? You can get them from your account.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Have solved it by using a list control and binding it to a different data source.
