I'm programming in Visual Basic 2008. I need to make a report, with its header, body and foot, and with graphics and matrix with data (NOT data base tables).

The challenge, is to make a report WITHOUT using data source. The data, are provided by an insternal calculation proccess from my application.Confused | :confused:

Ican't do it, because rdlc reports and crystal reports ask me ALWAYS for a data source, but I don't have any, because de real data source is a process from my own application, NOT a data base or similar. Dead | X|

Could you help me? Thank you in advance.

Design the report yourself using GDI+, and then you can do what you like with it. Print it using PrintDocument, Save it as Word Document or PDF or anything. You really don't have to use third party tools. .Net has everything you need Big Grin | :-D
