SYMPTOMS

In the Report Writer, all the options in the Field Aliases section of the Expression Builder Options dialog box are disabled. Therefore, the Report Writer always adds alias names to the report field objects. This is not a problem in the Visual FoxPro 3.0x.

RESOLUTION

There are two workarounds for this problem. First, issue a CREATE REPORT command and select Quick Report from the Report menu bar. In the Quick Report dialog box, clear the Add Alias option. Second, use the Report Wizard to create the report. The Report Wizard does not place alias names on the field objects.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
