nested reports in nested report
Hi, I have a report with a nested dw in a nested dw.
I would like to change som properties of both datawindows/reports (width and
moving som columns - it's a grid report)
But how do I reference the nested report. I cant use GetChild (fails as it
is not a Composite). I have managed to get the to the first report and
change the width of i with the syntax
dwo_1 = dw_report.Object.dw_1
dwo_1.width = 3000
But trying to get to the next level this fails, i.e. i tried
dwo_2 = dwo_1.Object.dw_2 // fails at runtime
Does anyone have a sugg...GetChild returns -1 with nested reports in nested reports
We have a composite datawindows with 4 reports. One of the reports has 2
When we use GetChild to get a reference to the 4 reports, the report with
the nested reports
When we remove the nested reports all works fine.
Is this normal behaviour or a bug??
We're using PB5.0.02.

Has any one tried to put and populate a nested report inside
already existing nested report?
Yes, What problems are you having?
Just retreive the main report and the nested - nested
report will retrieve.

...Nested Report (is a row in a nested report)
I want to find out if there is a row in a nested report.
I tried the following statements:
la_data=ldw_report.Object.Data // this statement fails, if
there is no row
if UpperBound(la_data) > 0 then ...
IF ldwc.RowCount() > 0 THEN .....

I'm nearly there, just one more thing to work out . . .
I have a composite which contains three nested reports
dw_letter -> nested_1
nested_2 -> nested_4
I can't use GetChild because this is deeper than one level, thus I am using
I need to build on this to step through all the users in the nested
datawindow, thus I need to know how many rows are in there, e.g.
To do this I need something like rowcount

I have a problem with lining up nested report.
I created a composite report with 4 nested reports. The fist nested report
is a free form report. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th report are grid reports. The 2nd
grid report line up directly to data show in the 1st report. But 3rd and 4th
report each start on a new page. But I do not want this.
I want to line them up like 2nd report to the 1st report..
How can I solve this problem?
I checked if the new page property is set for the repport, but this is not
the case. They all have property 'autosize heigth' and 'slide dir...Nested Reports
Does anyone know how to add a pagebreak between 2 pre-defined nested

---------------------------------------------------...Problem Created Nested Report Object On Report DataWindow
I'm using PB703 Build 10213.
I face a problem creating a Sub-Report Object on an existing Report Data
When ever I try to do this the system crushes.
I also tried to copy an existing sub-report object from another datawindow.
In this case the system does not crush, but all columns on the main
datawindow, having a ddlb edit style, loose the ddlb information. (Even if
you define them again, when you close & reopen the datawindwo, they are

...Sort a nested report in a composite report and GetChild() problem?
PB 9.0.2 Build 7509
Trying to sort a nested datawindow on a composite report.
Two reports on the composite.
I can get a handle to one using GetChild(), but not the other!
This always returns -1:
rtncode = dw_1.GetChild('dwc_one', main_child)
If I use 'dwc_two', the other datawindow, it works!
Any ideas on why?
Or how to sort using dot notation?

...Reference a datawindow object (nested report) in a datawindow
Is it possible to reference a datawindow object in a datawindow?
My scenario :
I have a datawindow (composite) which holds another datawindow (nested
This child datawindow has a OLE ActiveX object which I am trying to access
from the window which holds the composite datawindow.
The reason for this is because I need to access the ActiveX

Original documentation :-) states that this is not a bug but expected

Philip ...nested report -getchild
i read that, nested report cannot use the getchild command.
So, anyone can teach me wat others command to use? I need to
do a save as command.
Do you want to save visually? Use PDF or PSR.
Do you want to save data? Maybe use a datastore with the same DW object as
the nested report and retrieve it with values for the row keys?

Is this a DataWindow.Net question?
