I want to use a crystal report. In that i dont want to use dataset. So the crystal report is generated with out the dataset, database expert-> create new connection-> ado(oledb)-> make new connection. All the fields are now generated in the field explorer. I want to use the group section. I want to group the data based on one date field. But what am getting is, some of the fields are only displyed in the group section while inserting a new group. But the needed field is not coming.
