Hello

For Calling the .rpt file in vb6, make a reference
of the control Crystl32.ocx "Crystal Report Control"

You will find a control in the toolbox, add that control into the form.

You can use the control's methods and properties
to set the file name of that .rpt file and set
the action property to "1".

It will show the report.

Hope this helps.

With Regards,
Raghavendra Mudugal

You Can Use the following code after adding the component : Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Library 10.0
-----------
Dim Appl As New CRAXDRT.Application
Dim Report As New CRAXDRT.Report
Set Report = Appl.OpenReport("d:\Report3.rpt")
CRViewer1.ReportSource = Report
CRViewer1.ViewReport
----------

where CRViewer1 is the name of the added component to your project

"Crystal Report Control" (Crystl32.ocx) is not available from Crystal reports 9 onwards. so the
posting by Raghavendra Mudugal dosent work. The second posting is OK and is the best method

Hi pritz,

   There are 2 ways to display a crystal report. You can use DSR(Crystal report designer) or external reports. Since you are new to this use the second method.

   Create your crystal report and include it in a folder in your application path.Then you can call it in your VB form. Add a crystal report control on your form then assign the report file name/window state/selection formula(if needed) and action(1=to display the report)

Let us know if you need more help or sample code regarding this.

Hi Marcogol,
Follow these steps and tell me where you fail? (if needed)

(1) Create the report using crystal reports inside a folder called reports in your application path. Make sure your report is working properly without any bugs. (you can do this by refreshing report's data)
(2) Add a crystal report contrroller on your vb form. (if you can't see crystal report control in your tollbox, go to Project-->Components-->Crystal Report Control to add crystal report control to your toolbox)
(3) In your vb code,

    Private Sub cmdPrint_Click()
        ' Assign report name
        CrystalReport1.ReportFileName=App.Path & "\Report1.rpt"
        ' command to display the report
        CrystalReport1.Action=1
        ' Set window state and other properties laso
    End Sub

* Note: CrystalReport1 - Crystal report control name
         Report1.rpt - crystal report name which contain in reports folder

Please let me know if anyone gets a good solid answer for this. Nothing above works with version 10. Works with older versions but not 10. Thanks for your help

Dear ahmed_hammam70,
I am in the look out of a solution of previewing and printing a report created in crystal report 8x through VB6. I was directed to this forum link and with the help of your code, I could preview the report. But I could not get the same printed even if I change the "CRViewer1 propoerty to print report. Can you help me ?


with regards

Murari
