I'm trying to print a report from VB using crystal Reports control and selection formulas but I get the following error when I initiate the control.action = 1

               Run-time error '20536'
               incorrect log on parameters

Anybody ever hit this problem

Can you show all the code you use to print the report? Especially the code where you set the properties of the Crystal control. It'll be easier to help you this way. Thanks!

instead of using
Control.action
try using
Control.PrintReport

this works. there are some instabilities with the method Action
PrintReport method should work after you set the
ReportFileName parameter.

I've tried what you suggested but it doesn't seem to be working...  Nothing happens after I pass the control.printreport statement. Thanks!

bergjc,

   Here's the code... It's actually a very simple code and I'm testing it out if CRW will work with MSSQL.

Dim sUserID, sGroupID, strrptpath As String

strRptPath = "C:\FISS\DSS\REPORTS\"

sUserID = "PALIM123"

crptFISS.SelectionFormula = _
    "({tblAuditTrail.fldUserID} = '" & sUserID & "')"

crptFISS.ReportFileName = strRptPath & "rptAuditTrail.rpt"
crptFISS.Destination = crptToWindow
crptFISS.Action = 1

Hi
I give an simple example to use crystallreport
1-create form1
2-put commandbutton on the form
3-press ctrl+T and check crystallreport4.6
4-put the crystallreport tool on the form
5-in the properties of crystallreport choose the report file name (*.rpt)
6-put these line code in the cmmandbutton1

      crystallreport1.action=1
      
these line will print the report on the screen windows & printer
and there is more than 10 format files you can import or export
good luck
if there is any problem my e-mail

It is apparently trying to connect to an SQL server, which I'm not positive that's what you want to do. Just in case though, in order to log on to an SQL server, you use:

crptFISS.LogonServer (dllName$, ServerName$, DatabaseName$, UserID$, Password$)  <---It's in the Crystal help file

However, I'm guessing that's not what you had in mind. I would look at how you set the report up in the Crystal development environment. However you have it now is misleading it to believe that you are trying to log to a SQL server.

Hi BergJC,

   It doesn't seem to work on mine.  Your explanation's great but I'm now getting the error at the point of executing the LogonServer method.  Anyway, I've tried what Yaco suggested and it gets through but it's not using the selection formula which is what I had in mind as I would need to pass in parameters.

  Yaco,   Any idea what's going wrong in my routine?

  Thanks anyway, BergJC.
