Hi!

I'm trying to convert a Crystal report to Telerik report but I'm having trouble figuring out what I should place in what sections of the new report, and could use some advice.

The report I'm trying to create is containing a purchase order.
In the header of the report are some customer information.
Under the customer information are order rows. If there are more rows that can fit on one paper, I want to customer information to show on the next page as well.

The people using the application wants to print all purchase orders that exists in the system.

So my questions are:
1) Shall I create one report containing all the purchase orders or shall I create a report per purchase order?
2) Since Telerik reporting only handle one data source, shall I flatten the data so each order row in my dataset contains the customer information?
3) What sections do I place what in ?

I'm thankfully for any advice you can give me cause right now I'm going in circles.

Regards,
Per

Hello Per,

The natural mapping of your data is a Master/Detail report, i.e. one report bound to the Order data and one subreport bound to the OrderDetails data.

We have a similar example called "Invoice" in our distribution. While reviewing it, please note how the ReportParameters and Filters are defined in the sub report SalesOrderDetails. In the main report Invoice we place the Customer details in the detail section, but you can place them in the GroupHeader and set its PrintOnEveryPage to true. Note how subreport item parameters are defined and its KeepTogether property.

Please, do not hesitate to contact us further if you have more questions about usage of our Reporting.
