How to share the datawindow to inner datawindow of nested datawindow
How to share the datawindow to inner datawindow of nested datawindow.
dw_1 is normal datawindow dw_nes is nested datawindow, both are placed
dw_nes contain dw_child datawindow
i want to share dw_1 and dw_child.
I have tried the below code, getting error
It's the dot notation. You will need to dw_nes.GetChild("dw_child", ldwc)
where ldwc is a _local_ datawindowchild.

Does anyone know if this problem has been corrected in PB 8

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.

we are trying to put some of our datawindow reports from the current
PowerBuilder application on to the Web. Most of the datawindows include
nested reports and N-Up presentation styles. With the help of manuals and
other documents, we set up the EAServer environment and tried to implement
a few reports, but so far, only simple tabular and grid datawindows come up
fine but not others. There was one N-Up style datawindow, which had all the
rows overlapped and the header information not displaying correctly.

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

Thanks,...Nested Datawindow used for Report
We are experiencing a problem with a nested datawindow we are using to
create a report. The nested datawindow contains only one field, which
may or may not contain data for each detail line in the report.
The problem is that when the report originally displays in a preview
window the first page displays all the information correctly. However,
as the user continues to page thru the report some of the information
does not display, even though the information is stored in the
database. After the second or third page of the report no information
is displayed in the nested datawindow. ...datawindows in composite datawindow used in datawindow.NET, are not sliding up

I have created an external datawindow with 10 fields, which
gets pasted from a pre-retrieved dw. This works fine when
the set of data is single. But I don't understand what I am
supposed to when multiple set of data is retrieved? Any
suggestion on this would be appreciated.
Externals make sense for nested reports on composite DWs because each nested
report has only one instance. However, it makes less sense to use externals
for reports nested within the detail band of a non-composite because there
will be an instance of the nested report for each master row. You can still...PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT using External Datawindows instead of Nested Datawindows
We are trying to improve performance for an application that is accessed
from remote sites. We have shifted the processing to the server by writing
stored procedures on AS400 and converting SQL datawindows to external
datawindows. We retrieve everything as strings and then parse the data and
use ImportString function to load the external datawindows. For numeric
fields we have computed columns that convert the string values. This has
worked great up until now. We have now come across a report that has 5
nested datawindows and takes a long time to execute.

I was trying to create a report which has a nested datawindow within another

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
