I want to be able to pass the start and end date for the report from my vb application so that it is displayed as part of the crystal report heading. How do I do this. I tried passing it via the formula property of the crystal control from vb, but it doesn't work.

You can replace the report title like this:

CrystalReport1.ReportTitle = "Lab Sample Batches From:" & _
  format(Frdate,"Short Date") & " To:" & _
  format(Todate,"Short Date")

I always just fill the report title with x's to make it long enough to hold my longest title (& then some).

The crystal control doesn't support a reporttile property. I am using version 4.6 of the control that came along with vb5.

I really want to put the heading in the Title section of the report. Can this be achieved using a formula.

Ok
In the CR designer, you have to put any formula you want, put a name to the formula and then in the edit-formula put "" (double quote)
Next, put the box generated where you want.
In the Visual basic, put
MyForm.MyCRObjet.Formulas(0) = "Title=' My Title '"

MyForm.MyCRObject.Formulas(1) = "Subtitle=' My subtitle '"

Or

Dim VarMyTitle as String
VarMyTitle = "My title"

MyForm.MyCRObjet.Formulas(0) = "Title='" & VarMyTitle & "'"

cero.
