i have an application in vb5 using crystal report which i opened in vb6.
i put crystalreport.ocx in my system file.after that i compile my application i got error in
  crystalreport1.replaceselection formula.so i changed it by selectionformula. now it compiles perfactly.but gives error at run time in crystalreport1.action=1 that is
  "can not read report -Version 4.0"
so how do i transfer my vb5 report into vb6 report without using data report of vb6?

Use Crystal Report (the application) to load your report and re-save it. It should save under the new version and correct your problem.

Which version of Crystal Reports do you have?
It simply sounds like you upgraded VB from version 5 to 6, but not the Crystal Report.
The VB app should have compiled fine after adding the CR OCX.

The syntax for referring to the Crystal Report's ReplaceSelectionFormula and the SelectionFormula methods is different, as in:
Crystal1.SelectionFormula = "..."
and
Crystal1.SelectionFormula ("...")

The problem what i find here is u have shifted from VB5 To VB6 and most probably u wont be having crystal report on ur VB6 ... So what u have to do is copy all the file's for crytal report and then put it on to the corresponding dirctories . it should work ........

to know the files for crystal report run CRW32.EXE and on the Help Click "About Crystal Report ..."  From there click the more Info Button it will show u all the Files required for Crystal report to Work and where it should be

Hope this will help U
