I am using the crytal reports control that comes with VB6. I am trying to print a report which requires a parameter. I am using the following code:

CrystalReport1.ReportFileName = "C:\one.rpt"
CrystalReport1.PrintReport

This pops up a window to enter the parameter value. After I do that, my screen flickers and I don't see any output. I don't want to use any SQL code. I just want to call the RPT file which I am doing right now.

This is an example to run a report that has one parameter and attaches to a SQL Server database

With CrystalReport1
        .ReportFileName = "MyReport.rpt"
        .Destination = crptToPrinter  'or crptToWindow to display on screen
        .Connect = "DSN = ;UID = UserName;PWD = UserPassword;DSQ = "
        .ParameterFields(0) = "ParameterName;ParameterValue;TRUE"
        .Action = 1
End With

I haven't tested what you described in your question, but when that has happened to me in the past I believe that meant that the parameters weren't matched by my data.

I'll try and find an app that I wrote w/ a parameter and let you know.  I, however, passed my parameters through VB and not the dialog box w/ Crystal.

It sounds like you are doing all the right things programmatically and the parameter call to the data might have a problem.

Thanks.
