How To…Troubleshoot Error Loading Report From Database

Question

“How do I troubleshoot error loading┬áreport from database?”

Solution

Check the BDE configuration setting for BlobSize. This value defines the maximum size for a blob. The default value is 32, which is too small for most reports.

Increase the size to 1024 or 2048 to accommodate your largest report definitions.

If you are using a BDE Alias:

  1. Select the Database | Explore menu option from the Delphi main menu.
  2. Select to the appropriate database alias from the list of databases.
  3. Modify the BlobSize setting from the list of properties on the right.
