Not sure if anyone is interested, but I wrote the following code, so that when you save a report to PDF, Excel, etc, you get a report Name like

Weekly Department Item Summary from 3-10-2019 to 3-16-2019.pdf

Just thought someone might be trying to do the same thing.

I suggested to FastReports that they add pre and post parameters, so you could pass a Save to Directory, and a Date or Department name into the FileName.

This is working well for me, so far.

Dim rptdir, outdir, mdate, mDate2 As String
Dim FileToCopy, NewCopy As String
Dim FReport As FastReport.Report
rptdir = SysInfo.GlbRptDir
outdir = SysInfo.GlbOutDir

FileToCopy = rptdir.ToString & "WeeklyDepartmentItemSummary.frx"
mdate = mToDateStr.Replace("/", "-")
mdate2 = mFromDateStr.Replace("/", "-")
NewCopy = outdir.ToString & "Weekly Department Item Summary from " & mDate2 & " to " & mdate & ".frx"

If System.IO.File.Exists(FileToCopy) = True Then
System.IO.File.Copy(FileToCopy, NewCopy)
End If


FReport = New FastReport.Report
Dim reportName As String = NewCopy
FReport.SetParameterValue("prmConn", SysInfo.GlbConnString)
FReport.SetParameterValue("prmStoreNumber", SysInfo.GlbStoreNumber)
FReport.SetParameterValue("prmFromDate", mFromDateStr)
FReport.SetParameterValue("prmToDate", mToDateStr)
