  • Hi,

    What is the datasource of the report?
    If it's a dataset, you can read the data in setting files into the dataset and display them on the report.
    if not , you might need to add a subreport to display them.

    Here is a totorial about how to connect dataset, please take a look at it :

  • Hi Harry,
    Sorry for the late reply.
    I'm using an Access Database .mdb as the datasource.
    Don't know if that link will help me. I just want to have a field on my report that uses the value of a setting, My.Settings.VNO.Value.

    Thanks for the help.

  • Hi,

    Crystal report can not connect to setting file directly.
    You might need to first read the content of the setting file into a table of typed dataset , then connect the dataset to report.
