So what's the relationship between the two? Author: ConnieWang Time: 2020-8-14 16:10
A database is an organized set of data that is stored in your computer, while a dataset is created using one or multiple data tables from a database.
In FineReport, we can't directly use data columns from a database, in order to design your report and drag data columns to the designer, you have to create the dataset for designing use.
