crystal_reports thread: crview from Crystal Reports 8 and VB.NET

Message #1 by "Robert Mottram" <rmottram@b...> on Fri, 7 Jun 2002 15:47:28
I am using VB.NET from Visual Studio.NET. I am trying to display a report 
which was created in Crystal report 8. If I use the VB.NET report viewer I 
get a message about the database connection type not valid for the new 
version of the viewer. For this reason I have used the viewer which comes 
with crystal reports 8. This now displays the report, but when I click on 
the buttons in the viewer most of them don't work. For example next/last 
page, print, export etc. 

This makes it more than useless!!!!!

Hope someone can help

hi robert,
  What kind of connection do you used to connect the crystal report 8. If u used the ODBC method then in your VB program u have to
specific the data source, and if u used the ADO method then u have to pass in the ADo recordset to the report before it can generate
the report. I am not sure how u write the reporrt in CR8 maybe u can tell me more about this.
