    private void rptUnbound_ReportStart(object sender, System.EventArgs eArgs)

        string m_cnnString = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Users\[UserName]\Documents\GrapeCity Samples\ActiveReports 9\Data\NWIND.MDB;Persist Security Info=False";    
        string sqlString = "SELECT * FROM categories INNER JOIN products ON categories.categoryid = products.categoryid ORDER BY products.categoryid, products.productid";    
        m_cnn = new OleDbConnection(m_cnnString);    
        OleDbCommand m_Cmd = new OleDbCommand(sqlString,m_cnn);    
        if(m_cnn.State == ConnectionState.Closed)    
        {        
            m_cnn.Open();
