DataWindows and datawindow objects
Difference between Datawindow and datawindowobjects?
- datawindow is a control on a userobject or a window
- datawindowobject (DWObject) is a control within a datawindow, defined in
the dataobject of the datawindow.
You refer to it as <datawindow-instance>.Object.<datawindow object>

DW Control is a "container" that reserves real-estate on the surface of
a visual object.

Can someone please list the various methods we can use to
convert the standard datawindow object to a datawindow .net
I'm lost. There's no conversion necessary. PB and DW.Net use the
same datawindow objects.

For example, can I set an expression in COLUMN_A's color property which

You can use the Describe() function.

My Question:- How to this action into pb script?
If you want to assign datawindow 'd_my_dw' to a dw control dw_1 in your script,
you would say dw_1.DataObject = 'd_my_dw'
If you are going to make an executable, do not forget to include d_my_dw in your

I want to change the nested report object(s) attributes.
I had used Describe() function to get objects -("DataWindow.Objects").
After removing the tab spaces I was able to get the object name within that
DW. By checking the Attributes -(ls_obj + ".Attributes") I came to know by
finding "nested_argument" that the current object is (nested) report.
Now if I assigned this object to the DDDWChild/Any variable it gives error
either at compilation or at run time.
If I created a datastore locally & assigned the dataobject of the current ...datawindows in composite datawindow used in datawindow.NET, are not sliding up

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
properties/functions after the composite datawindow have been retrieved.
I've tried to get a reference to the child datawindow :

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 know why it's doing it but I can't fix it. Here is what I have found.
Initially I created a DataWindow Object called d_geninfo which saves
data to the GENINFO table. Then, some months later, I changed the
HOMEOWNER column in the GENINFO table from Char(1) to Char(16) and I
created a second DataWindow Object d_geninfo_preferred that accesses the
same GENINFO table. If I save data using d_geninfo_preferred that is
more than 1 character long and I later retrieve it into d_geninfo it
