How to create a column binding

This procedure shows an example of creating a column binding for a data element.

In Display Name, optionally specify a different name to display in the report design. If you leave this property blank, the report design displays the Column Binding Name value.

If you need help constructing the expression, choose the expression builder button to launch the expression builder. Figure 4‑2 shows an expression in the expression builder that combines the values of two data set fields selected from the Customers data set. Choose OK when you finish constructing the expression.

In the layout editor, the report design displays [Contact_Name] in the location where you inserted the data element, indicating that the data element uses the column binding you defined.
