access thread: Calling a Crystal Report from an Access screen(Form)


Message #1 by "Bill Paen" <bpaen@e...> on Fri, 1 Jun 2001 20:49:46
I want to trigger a report, done by Crystal Report, by clicking on a 

customized button within an Access Form. How can I do it? I have no 

problem to design the button and event handler in Access but don't know 

the remaining required steps to accomplish this task. I would appreciate 

it if anyone can help me out.



Thanks a million.

You can shell out to crystal with the Shell() command--would that suit?



HTH,
