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 know if this problem has been corrected in PB 8

Philip ...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

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

you define them again, when you close & reopen the datawindwo, they are

I have a report, that contains a datawindow, which itself contains a
datawindow. Everything is working fine until the number of retrieved lines
get's over about 1100 primary and over about 3200 retrieved nested lines.
Although the task manager (I'm using Powerbuilder 7.0.3 on Windows 2000)
shows me, that there is still enough free memory, the data retrieval stops
and Powerbuilder (or the application which called the Retrieve() method)
ends itself without any error message. That allways happens when the
datawindow has allocated about 70 MB of virtual memory. (About 99% of those
...Nested report inside nested report
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 in datawindow
I would like to have a nested report in the trailer of a group on my
datawindow. the problem is I don't know how big the nested report will be
and there isn't a autosize on trailer bands.
Can anyone help me with how to do this?? thanks.
no, it doesn't do it for you, I suggest if the database support, try to use
store procedure to group data for display instead of using nested report!

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 composite report that contains five nested reports. One of the
nested reports contains nested reports within it. GetChild does not work on
this NR. This was listed under the GetChild help.
Nested reports: You cannot use GetChild to get a reference to a report in a
composite DataWindow when the report itself is a composite or nested
I need to get a handle to this NR so I can apply translations. Any ideas?
There are multiple rows, therefore PB doesn't know
which nested report to apply the change to.
What type of change are you doing?

Nested reports problem. You can name them in the painter during development,
but not at run time when added
using create( ). Problem is there is no way to do a GetChild( ) for run time
added nested reports. How else are you
to manipulate and share data to a nested report on a composite datawindow?
...Populating Nested Report
I have a report which contains several nested reports. Many of the nested
reports have an external data source.
I'm using pb7.0 - my question is, how do I go about populating those
nested, external reports? I understand I can't use Getchild, but have had
no luck trying to use dot notation.
...nested datawindow within another nested datawindow?
I was trying to create a report which has a nested datawindow within another
nested datawindow, and PB didn't seem to go for this... got memory errors.
Is this even possible? I searched all of the usual resources and couldn't
find anything about this... maybe they assumed nobody would be dumb enough
It is perfectly legal to have multiple levels of nested reports. However,
nesting isn't supported for certain DW types like grid and n-up. Try testing
your DWs on their own to ensure that they work properly. Then nest them one
at a time and try to i...Nested datawindow reports
Is there a way to retreive a nested report using code
without have to retrieve the parent datawindow?
Is this a DataWindow.Net question?
