> 6) When either the pdf or xls button is clicked, they use the copies of the frx and dbf to export the report using foxypreviewer.
> 7) I also added a sstoexcel2 button that can take advantage of it's capabilities. It also uses the copy of the dbf for is source.

Now I suppose they will need 3 options: report behavior 80, foxypreviewer, report sculptor (with drill down, foxypreviewer, and sstoexcel2).

While including rspro.vcx for drilldown capability, I am having an error when compiling exe using ReportSculptor with the rspro.vcx library:

Visual Class Library c:\schedulepluspro\rsdev\libs\rspro.vcx has the following errors:
Unknown RSSTRINGTOARRAY - Undefined
Unknown RSVALUETOSTRING - Undefined

Can anyone verify this as an issue or provide guidance? Thanks in advance!


The best is yet to be.
