Edit Calculated Fields Dialog of the Report Designer

Calculated fields can be used to create new values that do not exist in the data source. For example, a calculated field can represent a new value, a constant, an expression value, user defined function or even a report parameter, or an existing field that is converted to a different datatype.

Add a Calculated Field

You specify a calculated field manually by creating an expression. The Edit Calculated Fields dialog is available in the property grid of our DataSource components:

by clicking on the ellipsis of the CalculatedFields property.
