Bound reports display dynamic data drawn from a data source. This tutorial describes the concept of binding controls to data (data binding) using drag and drop from the field list, the Smart Tag, or the Property Grid.
A Calculated Field is an expression applied to your data fields to yield some new value that can be used in your report just like a standard data field. Here's how to create a Calculated Field and use it in your reports.
Parameters provide a way to dynamically filter your report when run in Print Preview, rather than having to change the filter each time you run it, or alternatively to create a report for each possible filter. Here we demonstrate how to create a Parameter drop down that provides values from a list pulled from your data. When an item is selected the report is filtered by the selected value.
The Summary Editor, available from the Label control, enables you to summarize data to display aggregate values at the end of each group, page or report. In this demonstration, we show how to use the Summary Editor to add totals to a report.
