Excellent, thanks for the example!!

A question:

Im new using MVD, that script can be used with a condition based in record?

Example something like:

if Phone = null then
       Employees.frxReport.LoadFromFile(ExtractFilePath(Application.ExeName)+'Report\1.fr3');

Please excuse my syntax, im still in learning phase

Thanks!

I want to make a little "Commercial proposal" application

The goal is simple: the proposal report have a cover and main data the others pages will be filled with "modules", finishing with a last report with the resumen data.

Example: a proposal with 3 modules will merge the main fr3, fr3 "A", fr3 "B", fr3 "C" and one last fr3 with the final data, the composite report merge 5 fr3 reports.

In the app the user need to select wich modules will be merged in the report  selecting over 50+ modules, that will be saved in a child table of the proposal table


The idea is: the user print a proposal saved in their table, the code call the child table "modules" to get all records with relationship of the proposal, if in a table is saved module "A" Named "1234" the code load first the 1234.fr3, then the next module is saved like "B" with name "78910", the code load 78910.fr3 is second place to be showed after "1234" in the report

sorry for my bad english, thanks in advanced
