Field Explorer

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Use the Field Explorer to insert, modify, or delete fields on your Crystal report.

The Field Explorer, which is part of the Crystal Report Designer, shows a tree view of Database Fields and Special Fields that are available for you to add to your report. The Field Explorer also shows the Formula, Parameter, Group Name, Running Total, and Unbound Fields that you have defined for use in your report.

The Field Explorer displays check marks next to fields already added directly to the report, and next to fields you have referenced or otherwise used within other fields and calculations (such as formula fields, groups, running totals, and summaries).

To view the Field Explorer from the Crystal Report Designer

  1. Click the View menu, point to Other Windows, and click Document Outline.
  2. Right-click any field to view its menu options.
