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...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
ll_max_rows = dw_letter....GetChild on Nested Report that contains Nested Reports?
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?
> I hav...Nested report does not line op to the previous nested report
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...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.

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

...how share information with a nested report inside a base report
In my application the user have the posibility of do a preview before
print the data. Each window have an associated report, that when the
user do a preview, the data that is being working inside the window are
shared with the associated report to the window and this is deployed to
the user in other window (w_preview). This work fine when tha window
is not managing information by style masted-detail, but when I need do a
report that have the masted-detail functionality to do the preview I
have the following problem:

Does anyone know if this problem has been corrected in PB 8
or 9? Please advise. I am currently using PB 7.

Original documentation :-) states that this is not a bug but expected
behaviour, so what kind of "correction" do you expect?

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!

Is there a way to retreive a nested report using code
without have to retrieve the parent datawindow?
Is this a DataWindow.Net question?
