    What’s the Lookup function and how to use it in a report?

    Lookup function returns some value(s) corresponding to a common field that has the data type but lies in another dataset. It can be used when we need to display varied data from different datasets in one data region.
    For more information on what lookup function is and how to use it in ActiveReports, please refer to the following Documentation link:

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
