    No overload for method 'name' takes '2' arguments

    I'm getting this error and I'm stumped:

    No overload for method 'ReportTemplateRun' takes '2' arguments

    Any assistence greatly appreciated, here is my code:

    Code:
    // Run a report
                int nCommunityID = 123;
                string nReportName = "Report1";
                string nReportOut = "";
                
                try
                {
                    nReportOut = APISess.WebService.ReportTemplateRun(nCommunityID, nReportName);
                }
                catch (SoapException c)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show(c.Message);
                }
    I'm trying to use a 3rd party API, this bit below was provided by the 3rd party:

    Code:
        public void ReportTemplateRun(AdminAPIReportTemplateID ReportTemplateID, bool IncludeSubCommunities, System.DateTime ReportStartDate, System.DateTime ReportEndDate, int ReportCommunityID, ref string ReportName) {
            object[] results = this.Invoke("ReportTemplateRun", new object[] {
                        ReportTemplateID,
                        IncludeSubCommunities,
                        ReportStartDate,
                        ReportEndDate,
                        ReportCommunityID,
                        ReportName});
            ReportName = ((string)(results[0]));
        }

    Well, it seems pretty darn obvious. You have a method which takes *6* arguments and you are calling it with only *2*. Sometimes helps to read the error message

    Doh! ok, thanks BigEd781.

    Slightly different issue now though

    How do I enter both values for AdminAPIReportTemplateID? I tried the below and it fails with AdminAPIReportTemplateID is a ‘type’ but is used like a ‘variable’.

    Code:
    sReportOut = APISess.WebService.ReportTemplateRun(AdminAPIReportTemplateID (nCommunityID,"test"), bIncludeSubs, sStartDate, sEndDate, nCommunityID, ref sReportName);
    If I change it to:
    Code:
    sReportOut = APISess.WebService.ReportTemplateRun(nCommunityID, bIncludeSubs, sStartDate, sEndDate, nCommunityID, ref sReportName);
    It also fails with: can’t convert from (int) to AdminAPIReportTemplateID

    Any ideas?

    (confused newbie!)

    AdminAPIReportTemplateID is a type, so you will need to get an instance of that type and pass it to the method. Now, do not just copy this code in, it may well be wrong because I do not have the definition of AdminAPIReportTemplateID available, but it would look something like this:

    Code:
    AdminAPIReportTemplateID templateId = new AdminAPIReportTemplateID( );
