Dynamic Loading of Parameter List from a file
Is there a way to dynamically load a parameter list in Crystal Reports? The reason I ask is because I have tired to load the parameter from a comboBox, but get this automated Parameter Dialog no matter what in c#. Then, I decided to load the parameters from a file because I saw a feature in the parameter dialog that allowed this. This was good.....BUT ITS NOT DYNAMIC!! I only get the list that was loaded when I used the parameter setup dialog. What is going on here? There seems to be no good way to load dynamic data to the parameter fields without a true database. I just want the user to be able to load the selected parameter from live data....not data that was set up during development. It seems any way I turn, I am having a tough time getting data to the parameter fields from real world lists generated during use....not at development time. ANy one have any ideas? I do not want to hear about database queries, as I have a CSV file. I will try and use the ODBC style SQL commands if there is no way of doing this, but it seems very basic. I cannot believe that there is no solution for dynamic loading of these parameters that is bug free. I have tried the Examples in the WRox Crystal Reports book. But they do not work for C#.
