Something strange here.  I see quotes around the file name (which is the
correct way to specify the file name as pointed out by Heinz) but in
Heinz's reply the quotes don't appear.

If the reportviewer can't find a file it reports "Illegal file name"
which is rather misleading.  A better option would be "File not found".
The name "view_results.rep" is perfectly legal.

Did the example form I posted previously work with the "nonsense"
view_results.rep report I included?

You reported that you were able to successfully create a report showing
the output from your program.  To view the report created by your
program make sure that the report is named view_results.rep i.e no typo
:-) and view_results.wfm is in the same folder.  If they are not in the
same folder you will need to add the path to the file name in
