    Dear Telerik,

    Finally I have got my report working but I just wanted to check with you that I have done it correctly.

    In my separate report class project I am hard-coding a value for the parameter ("UserID") - so that I can test it.

    On the display page I am using..

     Dim report As Telerik.Reporting.Report = New eReports.MainReport()
     report.ReportParameters("UserID").Value = UsersDB.UserID.ToString       'brings back the logged in users UserID Guid

    It works and overrides the hard-coded value  but is this correct form please please?

    Hi Jack,

    This is a correct way to assign value to a report parameter. you can also use the ReportSource Parameters collection, which maps by key to the report's ReportParameters collection. Consider the example in the TypeReportSource Class article.

    If your concerns are regarding working with GUID type, it depends what is the purpose the field. You can work entirely with String or use the approach illustrated in the How to use a Guid as value for report parameter or data source parameter? KB article.

    If you need further help, please elaborate on the scenario.
