    I'm working through the Editable Reports Example/Tutorials and am pretty stuck.

    I believe there is something missing from the example code or extra information that is confusing me.

    I'm looking at the two links below:

    Example Report

    Code for Example Report

    Looking at the code for example 1 there seems to be calls to procedures called film editing and editing_more but the report is for a Budget Cost center.

    Additionally Example 2 which would also be useful makes no reference to any procedures.

    Basically I want to run a select statement on a database and have on editable field the user can update.

    Can someone take a look at the guide/example and let me know if this is right? It doesn't seem to be.

    The demo showcases different editing scenarios which are separate from eachother.

    Example 1:
    Budget editing (code for this in the main report sp_DBR_editable)

    Editable fields:
    - budget, editing report: sp_DBR_budget_edit, using autosum_int-callback to automatically refresh the horizontal and vertical summary values
    - comment, editing report: sp_DBR_budget_edit_comment

    Example 2:
    Showcasing different user input types (code in a separate sp_DBR_ft_editable_more-report):

    Editable fields. All use sp_DBR_budget_edit_comment as a dummy editing report, the purpose is to show different input methods):
    - basic, no special input
    - text, autogrowing textares
    - selectlist, select list
    - radiobutton, radiobuttons
    - date, datepicker

    Example 3:
    Showcasing a real-type editing scenario (code in a separate sp_DBR_film_editing-report):

    Editable fields:
    - Delete, showcasing use of a callback-function, (sp_DBR_film_editing_del)
    - Category, a selectlst, (sp_DBR_film_editing_category)
    - is_showing, a toggle edit with (sp_DBR_film_editing_is_showing)
    - Description, an autosize textarea (sp_DBR_film_editing_description

    Basically I want to run a select statement on a database and have on editable field the user can update.

    To do that, just take a look at the Example 1, it shows how to assing an editable report to a field and just do simple editing. Also, in the documentation, there is a step by step example ( see Basic example).
