1685949 - Field Mapping event does not trigger with RAS SetTableLocation in the Crystal Reports .NET SDK


Field Mapping event in the Crystal Reports .NET SDK does not trigger when running reports even though the database structure has changed.


  • Microsoft Windows XP
  • Visual Studio .NET 2008
  • Crystal Reports 2008
  • Crystal Reports 2011


The Field Mapping event in the Crystal Reports .NET SDK only gets executed if the Report is based off of a command object. Reports based off of other data sources will not cause this event to run.


This was the way the field mapping event was designed to run. To request a new feature or product enhancement, SAP has defined a new process and tool that is now available to customers called Idea Place: Idea Place gives customers the ability to log their own Enhancement Requests and work more directly with our Technology and Development group.
