RPX and DSR question

    We currently have a fairly old vb 6.0 app using AR 2.0. Currently the app doesn't utilize loading RPX's and now we are seeing some issues after moving to Windows 2003 on our servers. I would like to convert the reports to load all of the reports RPX's. However, I am having a hard time finding a good example that sets a data control dynamically and uses events in the existing DSR files. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have figured out setting the data control dynamically but I am still confused about how the events in the old DSR work with RPX's. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could explain this to me.

    When an RPX file of a report is saved, it only contains the layout of the report controls.  None of the codebehind from the DSR report is saved.  You do have the option of using scripting in your reports.  The script of your reports will be saved.  If you are looking to move all of your reports over to RPX files, you will need to move the codebehind of your reports to the script section of your reports.
