1201977 - Fields are stripped from subreport that is based on Command Objects

Symptom

When using Crystal Reports XI Release 2 and Visual Studio .NET, fields are stripped from the subreport when data is pushed to the report using ADO.NET objects.

 

Resolution

To resolve, call SetDataSource on the subreport first, then set the main report"s data source. Fields will no longer be dropped from the subreport.
 
Basic code snippet:
 
Dim crReportDocument As New CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument
Dim crSections As Sections
Dim crSection As Section
Dim crReportObjects As ReportObjects
Dim crReportObject As ReportObject
Dim crSubreportObject As SubreportObject
Dim crSubreportDocument As ReportDocument
'load the report
 crReportDocument.Load(System.Windows.Forms.Application.StartupPath)
'loop through all the sections to find all the report objects
          For Each crSection In crSections
            crReportObjects = crSection.ReportObjects
            'loop through all the report objects to find all the subreports
            For Each crReportObject In crReportObjects
                If crReportObject.Kind = ReportObjectKind.SubreportObject Then
                    'you will need to typecast the reportobject to a subreport
                    'object once you find it
                    crSubreportObject = CType(crReportObject, SubreportObject)
                    'open the subreport object
                    crSubreportDocument = crSubreportObject.OpenSubreport(crSubreportObject.SubreportName)
      'pass the dataset to the subreport(s)                   
      crSubReportDocument.SetDataSource(dataSet)
                End If
            Next
        Next
'pass the dataset to the main report
crReportDocument.SetDataSource(dataSet)
       
'view the report
CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = crReportDocument
