You mean calling Crystal Report from Visual Basic 6.0?
If this is what you mean,
After creating the data file to bind in Crystal Report, add the Crystal Report OCX control, eg name it crpReport.

To call the report from VB6:

crpReport.ReportFileName = "C:\Test\MyReport.rpt"
crpReport.Datafiles(0) = "c:\Test\Test.mdb"
crpReport.Destination = crptToWindow
crpReport.Action = 1

Your question is not very clear but if understood it correctly the answer will not cheer you up. VB6.0 doesn't include Crystal Reports Program any more. If you need this engine you can purchase it separately from Segate Software or install VB6.0 over VB5.0 which includes CRYSTAL REPORTS whith it.
