I have 5 external datawindows that I will use for printing
an enrollment form. Two are purely legal text that I am
using an ole(word doc) for, one will be populated using
embedded sql and setitem calls, and the other two are a
combination of ole and external columns.
1. Does the normal process of dw_control.settransobject
dw_control.retrieve work for ole based datawindows?
2. If this is the right approach, then do I "retrieve" the
ole datawindows and populate my other datawindows first and
3. retrieve the composite datawindow for preview and print

I have tried different approach with not much of a success
I tried basic ole automation , connecting to word and copy the data from

the formatting of report.

You don't need to use updateblob with ole column objects in datawindows, it
is done automatically. Check out Table Blob objects in the online help for

...MS .Net Gridview vs DataWindow.Net
I thought I would write "my two cents" about the Datawindow
and the supplied GridView control in .Net 2005.
I have been reviewing the DataWindow.Net functionality. My
background is Powerbuilder programmer and current C# .Net
developer. Having written Asp.Net applications using the
GridView, it is safe to say that the DataWindow.Net is far
The Microsoft community has no concept of what a
"Datawindow" is. The idea of
displaying/editing/adding/deleting records in a form with
one save command is a foreign concept. The Gridview contro...DataWindow's "Create large binary/text database OLE object"
1) For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to load the
datawindow's "Create large binary/text database OLE object" with a PDF
file stored in a binary column in a SQL Anywhere 11 database (via
'System DSN' ODBC). I have successfully done so populating an OLE
Object with PDF straight from a file location, but cannot get the DB
OLE object type to work.
2) When I populated the OLE Object with a PDF straight from file and
resize the PDF to actual size, the PDF text is blurred (pixelated).
Thsi is especially a problem as I have to be able to print this PDF

Can someone please list the various methods we can use to

I'm lost. There's no conversion necessary. PB and DW.Net use the
same datawindow objects.
