    Try to use SelectionForumula
    Something like
    CR.SelectionFormula="{Name='YourData'}"

    This is not as easy as it sounds.

    It took me 3 weeks to work it out. To get it to work we need more info i think. How is the user going to select the Name? Via a combo box (drop down list) or input it into a text box?

    Will the report be embedded into the application or will it be stored out side the application?
