Default VB databases and Reports


I need urgent help. This is my second post because noone seems to be replying to my first post. Anyway here's the problem.

I have made a project using VB ADO database connectivity. I need to add functionality of generating/printing reports. I have found tutorials on this using crystal reports but I dont have crystal reports on my installation and neither on the Visual Studio 6 Cd. What are the alternatives to design a report for a database query in VB..

I am using the Visual Data Manager to manipulate my database because of some compatibility issue with VB6 and office2000.

Please help me..

Crystal Reports should be on your VB6 CD. It's a bit difficult to find and needs to be installed separately from the CD.

Alternatively, you could use the Data Environment to connect to your database and the associated Report Designer.

Hope this helps,
