Is there a procedure to capture MS Access DB Reports into Crytal Reports?  Or a procedure to 'query' the MS Access DB report information using VB?

I don't think that there is any procedure for capturing the MS Access DB Reports into Crystal Reports.  Actually, we can call the reports done in MS Access from Crystal Reports.  Through VB we could write a procedure to query the MS Access DB report information.

Sounds good to me! I know it's two questions...but you brought it up.  How can Crystal Report call the MS Access reports, and what would be the query in VB to do same?  Another 50 pts. into the pot.
Thanks
Please wait for vamsi_k to respond.

There is now such thing as to transform the reports from access format to Cristal reports.

You can call an Access report from VB, for that you need to have the access installed in the same machine.

Another way you can call an Access report from VB is by using the VSReports from videosoft, this Control reads an Access report and open it in VB environment without the need for Access.

If you really want to see something cool, check out ActiveReports from Data Dynamics. If forget the URL. They have a new product which mimics the Access report generator, but runs as a VB designer.

The site for Data Dynamics is www.datadynamics.com

Active Reports it's a great report generator, use it if you do not need to mantain compatibility with Access Reports, but if you need to maintain that compatilibity you must use VSReports: www.videosoft.com

MsgBox RFormula

cryTest.Formulas(0) = "sTitle = '" & Text3.Text & "'"  'Title. Nothing Mean

cryTest.SelectionFormula = RFormula

cryTest.Action = 1
