Dynamic column names in crystal reports
Hi everyone,

I have been trying to get this to work for weeks now. I have seen many other people with the same query. I do not know if anyone has managed to solve it.

I want to pass a Dataset/Datatable/Datagrid to a crystal report viewer and show the contents. However, I do not want to define the schema for the report as it can vary according to the user choice. I want Crystal reports to determine the schema from the Dataset. Is that at all possible? If it is not then I think this is a serious deficiency on the part of the report library. The reports are hardly ever based on such strongly typed data.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I also have the same problem.

I have a stored procedure that takes a parameter and returns a dataset. This dataset should be bound to the crystal report. The report has one column that can be fixed at design time but the remaining columns are dynamic in number depending on the parameter passed to the stored procedure. Also i would like the columns to be skinny and thin and oriented 90 degrees.

Is there anyway this can be done.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
