how to open crystal reports in vb?

I've written a database program in Vb6 and one of my form contains codes that will open up crystal reports, but it failed to work. I don't know really know what should I use in the form to open up the reports as well as the codes. Thanks

To open a report in Vb You need to open the  a.rpt file of crystal report that you have created.

To open a report in VB
you have to place a crystal report control from the tool box onto the form.

Now to test you can assign the reportfilename property by selecting the .rpt file you have designed.


This is the code:
Put a command button and write this under its click event
crystalreport1.Reportfile="C:\report1.rpt"
cystalreport1.WindowState = crptMaximized   crystalreport1.Destination = crptTowindow
crystalreport1.Action = 1
   
This code works fine if the report is designed properly.

Post some of the code, I can then try to work out which bit(s) aren't working and suggest a solution.

Thanks, it works just fine.  I'm sure you wanna get more points. Can you please have a look at my other question I asked on the 9th. The topic is "refreshing problem with 2 child forms" I'll up the point if you could help me with it. Thanks again
