    The samples in Samples14 folder demonstrate report designing features that cover desktop, designer, API as well as advanced features. Download these samples from following link:

    Note: When you preview a sample report in the Preview tab of the ActiveReports Designer in Visual Studio, or in a Standalone Designer, you will get the "*.mdb is not a valid path" error. This error appears because the report data source uses the relative path from the Bin>Debug folder of the Sample.

    Each sample has a C# and a Visual Basic.NET code example for Visual Studio. You can also see the comments within the sample projects throughout code.
