At the moment we have many functionalities written in C# that use Crystal Reports for reporting purposes. The data for these reports is obtained by the business logic using Entity Framework and next passed to the CR report. We want to replace CR by an alternative and SealReport seams to be a good candidate. We want to keep the effort as low as possible. So my question is whether SealReport can accept data passed by business logic rather than having its own connection to the database. So the SealReport shouldd not have a database connection. Is this possible and where can I find more information about this?

Thanks in advance, Henk

Hi, difficult to answer,
SR is using the .Net object DataTables for each model. So you may generate your DataTable from other sources (check the reports in Samples\02-LINQ with Excel, Json request, etc.).
Check https://sealreport.org/Reports#lineModels

I guess you should use a LINQ Data Source that defines the tables got our business logic layer...
Eventually you may even define Joins between your tables.

Good luck.
