Line 1 When the DLL is entered initially, a dcoument is created which sets the inside frame to be the whole page. AddFirstPage over-rides these defaults so long as nothing has already been added to the document. In this example both a header and a footer are created. An artificially wide right margin is specifed in order to demonstrate how the report is pslit across more than one page.

Line 2 An ADO data source is accessed

Line 3 And a connection established

Line 4 A particular table is selected from the database

Line 5 The successive rows from the recordset are accessed.

Lines 6 - 8 Data from the record are accessed and printed using AddTextAt. If more data is to be shown than will fit on a single page, an appropriate autostep option should be specified.

Lines 9 - 10 The next row in the table is selcted

Line 11 Finally, the document is complete and, by default, EndDocument displays the result in the preview window, allowing the user to review it or print it as desired.
