    [RESOLVED] CR8.5 - Error in Formula on 2nd time opening report from VB6 application

    I keep getting an 'Error in Formula' message that states that the 'field name is not known' in the record selection when I open my report a second time from my VB6 application. It works perfectly the first time, but fails every time after that until I close and re-open my application.

    Anyone seen anything like this?

    Re: CR8.5 - Error in Formula on 2nd time opening report from VB6 application

    1.- Check if there's a blank or space or CR or NL at the end of the RecordSelectionFormula
    Obviously you are not going to 'see' it, but if there's one, then the cursor is going to be in the next line of the code
    Delete it and test

    2.- If point 1 is not the solution then export the rpt to Report Definition format, Destination DiskFile
    Please, post attach the created txt file

    No, it works every time without issue when I run it from the IDE. This is only when my VB6 application calls it. It works the first time, but fails every time after that. I looked at every variable I could find to see if there was a difference between the 1st and 2nd calls and couldn't find one.

    Alright, here's the 'meat' of the code and the values being passed...

    strConnect = "DSN=server;UID=username;PWD=password;DSQ=DBName"
    strSelect = "{ANALYTE_MANIFEST_JOIN.RELEASE_RESULT} = true and {CHAIN_OF_CUSTODY.SAMPLE_REF_NO} = 32624"
    strReportFile = "C:\program\reports\coc_final_results.rpt"

    crwManReport.ReportFileName = strReportFile
    If Len(strSelect) > 0 Then
    crwManReport.ReplaceSelectionFormula strSelect
    End If
    With crwManReport
    .Connect = strConnect
    intSubCount = .GetNSubreports
    For iCurRpt = 0 To intSubCount - 1
    .SubreportToChange = .GetNthSubreportName(iCurRpt)
    .Connect = strConnect
    Next
    If Not modBIF.blnRunBatch Then
    .WindowState = crptMaximized
    .WindowShowCloseBtn = True
    .WindowShowPrintSetupBtn = True
    .Action = 1
    End If

    Re: CR8.5 - Error in Formula on 2nd time opening report from VB6 application

    Some things to do (almost sure that you already did) :
    1 If the design time database is different from run time database then change database location and execute 'verify database'
    2 Remove the subreport and test

    Looks like it was the sub-report! I removed it since it doesn't dynamic content and it worked. Thanks!

    Re: [RESOLVED] CR8.5 - Error in Formula on 2nd time opening report from VB6 applicati

    I hate to resurrect this thread, but I'm still struggling with this issue. It appears that ANY report which has a sub-report is throwing this error. If I delete the sub-report then it works, but I need some of these sub-reports so I really need to make it work. I have saved off and re-imported the subreports and converted the DB drivers and everything and still no luck. The reports work without issue from the IDE but my application throws the error above after more than 1 open of the report.

    Re: [RESOLVED] CR8.5 - Error in Formula on 2nd time opening report from VB6 applicati

    Here's some more info on the error...

    Error # - 20515
    Error in File C:\report.rpt:
    Error in formula <Record_Selection>.
    '{report.sample_ref_no} = 32623'
    This field name is not known.
