Been playing with Shorts today for the first time. I see how to create a report, save it, and run it off a Web page. I also see how to offer the user some choices for the query. I also see how to supply the report with arrays of data instead of having the report query a database. But is there a way to supply the report a database query string when a method calls it? If not, I guess I can have the method supply the data instead of the query string.
If you are using the Report Designer you have two ways of doing it. You design the database query and parameters into the report and it does all the rest of the work for you, or, you can pass in the data you want.
If you create a report via code (decidedly much more work) then you can do whatever you want but then it’s all on you.
Working with the above approach you suggested now, and it seems like a more direct approach, allowing me to send the query to BKS_Shorts and let BKS_Shorts grab the data. Needs only a few lines of code added to ReportBKS.LoadReportWhereConditions. Much easier to deal with than the way I outlined in my post just before this.
