Exporting datawindows with nested reports or composites to excel or flat text

I have various datawindow reports in our pb6.5 application
....some are composite datawindows...others are datawindows with nested 

I would like to export the visual contents of the datawindow to microsoft 
excel (.xls) or flat text. (.txt)

Two u_dw methods which I have tried, but failed, are SaveAs()and 
SaveAsAscii().  For simple datawindows these methods are fine, but not for 
the more complex datawindows I mentioned earlier.

Does anyone have any ideas.

datawindow with nested report trying to export
i have a datawindow with nested report in the detail band i try to use the fuction dw_1.saveas() but i didn't get the nested reprots how to do that pls. help me? You need to save reports separately using datawindowchild class. SaveAs() works against the data set, not the presentation layer, so it wouldn't pick up on presentation formatting, nesting of datawindows, etc.... Like Dmitriy says, to get nested, you'll have to grab the datawindowchild and SaveAs() on it. However, if you want the data to show as nested, you'll have to roll your own save routine....

Modify SQL syntax of nested report in composite datawindow
Hi all How can I modify the SQL syntax of the nested report that exists in composite datawindow programatically (ie. To change the "where" conditions at runtime)? Because I know PB6.5 cannot use Getchild() to do it. Any help would be appreciated. Harry with PB6.5 Try using the following syntax - this works for PB7 to get the select statement associated with a nested report ls_syntax = dw_1.object.ro_class_plan.object.DataWindow.Table.select to replace the sql dw_1.object.ro_class_plan.object.object.DataWindow.Table.select = ls_syntax "Harry...

Page breaking Nested Reports in a Composite Datawindow (PB8)

Anyone got any ideas???? Never mind, I found the "New Page" property in the reports object that took care of making sure the two reports didn't run together. ...
