    In the knowledge base article about event order, it says that the ReportStart procedure will fire before DataInitialize, and that you should initialise all of your variables etc in ReportStart.  In my report, however, in both the main report and in subreports, DataInitialize is firing before ReportStart. This means that objects that are used in DataInitialize are not yet set, producing errors. Have I set something wrong??

    If you are not running the latest build I would recommended upgrading.

    I had an issue with some odd sequences awhile back, which turned out to be a corrupted DSR file. If the upgrade doesn't fix anything, you could try bringing back a backup.

    I'm running the trial version - evaluating it to see whether it is suitable for my project - so upgrading is not really an option. I tried creating a new project with new designers, but the event order remains the same, so I guess it isn't a corrupt dsr file.
