myLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = UCase(SelectedDB.GetName) & "_ODBC"
myLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = UCase(SelectedDB.GetName)
myLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.UserID = UCase(usr)
myLogonInfo.ConnectionInfo.Password = UCase(pwd)



But when the Data is retreive using a query file it crashes.

VB6 & Crystal Report .rpt File 101
Is there anywhere I can find a Tutorial on how to merge a Crystal Reports .rpt file with VB6?

I've read the FAQ in here, but I got stuck at the "Import Existing Report option" as there seems to be no such thing!

I can understand that the layout designed in CR, in theory becomes a Data Report in VB, but how?

What differences are there in using an imported CR.rpt and using the CR control?

How does one use a CR control - I can't find it in the MSDN reference...

Please help as I'm completely stuck without a Reference guide to go with.

Hi there,

Does anyone know how I can export an existing Crystal report to a pdf file form a VB program? I got a little program which allows a user to view or print a report.

I know that report viewer has this feature, but I want to generate the report in the background after the user selected email button (reports take a long time to generate and we have remote users). Can anyone help please?

Open Crystal Report File From VB Automatically.
I've been trying to figure out a way to create a VB program that will automatically open a Crystal Report file when I click on that file from Windows Explorer. What I did was make a simple form with a Crystal Report Control on it. Then I associated the *.rpt file type with that program so that when I click on that file type, Windows will launch my program to try and open that Crystal Report file. I figure it must be some kind of DDE solution, I think. It can't be that difficult of a thing to do. I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.

report.export False

Whenever I user some other format type other than crEFTText. I get the following error:

Crystal Report Data Not Refreshing ( Using TTX File )
On following the code specified at FAQ: How to Connect ADO Recordsets to Crystal Reports Designers ;I was able to execute the SP ;but am not able to see the correct data in the TTX file .
But,the data displayed is not refreshed everytime although TTX file displays new data . I have tried using DISCARDSAVEDDATA and "SAVE DATA WITH REPORT" is unchecked as well , CrystalReportViewer.Refresh is also defined ;but none of these options seem to work with this particular report.
Only if I unload the report,and run the application again,does it display previous times data.Could anyone please guide me as to how this can be achieved?
Whereas what I need to do is display the data on the report without closing the application . When I pass new parameters and click "View the report",it should display fresh data.
Thanks in advance.

Crystal Report - Connecting To An IBM M/f Flat File

I'm just starting to use Crystal Reports. I have been successful connecting to a DB2 database table on our mainframe but can't figure out how I would connect to a mainframe flat file.

Do I need a special driver? Do I need to use OLE DB or something else.

I have not tried adding my Crystal Report to a VB program yet.

Thanks for any advice you might have.

Read Text File Using Crystal Report
I am generating a report using Crystal reports. I have database with me at the same time I have a flat file (.TXT File). What I want to do is that, I will read the text file, extract the information, based on that information, I do query to the database and extract the data.

For example. the flat file contains the following ;

Dept Names

Dept1 ABC
Dept1 XYZ
Dept1 ABC1
Dept2 Chidam
Dept2 Maran
Dept2 CK

The database has more names mentioned in the flat file. So read this flat file take Dept and name as criteria for query and display only these names.

Is there any way, where I can do this?
