FastReport in TOAD - reverse engineer .fr3


#1

I just created a report and saved it as a .fr3. Is this data actually saved in a table? If so, what table is it? I would like to dynamically create a report. I’ve done this in Visual FoxPro as well as in MS Access, using VBA.

Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

The fr3 file is the report definition, or layout. It is not saved in a table anywhere, but we do keep a file called ReportAssociations.ini to remember which
fr3 file goes with each table (or query) in your database.

You can look at the file with notepad if you are interested in its contents.

I would not recommend attempting to build an fr3 file on the fly, but once you have some of these built, it is not hard to run them from a command line. Click
the “Generate command line” button (4th from the end) on the Reports Manager toolbar to get started doing that.
