For your info, i have never used crystal report before in VB but i know it used to generate report and print also. However, i have no idea how it work in VB.

Let forget crytal report, are there any other method or component(Active X)  that can achive my objective ????

It's not clear which part of "getting started" you're asking for help with.  Have you used Crystal Reports interactively yet?  If not, that's a good place to start to know what the program is capable of.  If you're looking for a demo program, go to:

There is both online and download information available.
