hey geoff,

that sounds like a good solution. So let's see if a have this correct.

1. Use Dream Co Dream Designer
2. Have a stock form or Data Module that contains a report and I suppose a
3. the user (or programmer) then executes an action which dynamically adds a
tdataset (or IB_ Native dataset) and a datapipeline with the dataset
property of the pipeline component set to the dataset.
4. then somehow the SQL is built.
5. The report is designed.
6. The whole data module is then "saved" by being streamed to a database or
7. The report can then be run and you may optionally first show some kind of
filtering mechanism (Where Clause)

And of course forms may be read from file or the database.

Do I have it correct?
