Help - Trying to set text property on FormulaFieldDefinition but get error
Hi I'am new to crystal reports. I inherited vb.net project that uses crystal reports. When trying to set the text property on the FormulaFieldDefinition object I get and error message "Error in formula name reserved characters cannot be used in formula name. When I debug the app I notice two things:
1.text property value is Nothing
2.The text that I'm trying to set is a literal ie. "Company Name"
Here is a snippet of the code
form_field_defs = cur_report.rReportDocument.DataDefinition.FormulaFields
For form_num = 0 To cur_report.uReport.iMaxFormulas - 1
form_field_def = form_field_defs.Item(cur_report.uReport.sFormulas(cur_report.uReport.NAME_COL, form_num))
form_field_def.Text = cur_report.uReport.sFormulas(cur_report.uReport.VALUE_COL, form_num)
cur_report.uReport.sFormulas(cur_report.uReport.VALUE_COL, form_num) Returns a literal of the name of the "Company"
Thanks in advance
