    Unbound Data
    In This Topic

    The Unbound Data sample demonstrates how to create a dataset for a section report and use the FetchData event to populate the Fields collection to display the report unbound data.

    When you run the sample, the Viewer control displays the form with four tabs, each with a different dataset binding technique. Click to select a tab, and then click the Build Report From button to create the report with unbound data.
