I am putting crystal report control box in my project.  It worked before when I had crystal report that came with VB5 installed.  Last nite I just formatted my HD and installed VB6, when I ran my project the crystal report turned into picture box control and it asked for crystal.ocx or something like that. I don't want to install VB5 because I'm running VB6 at the moment. So does anyone know where I can get the ocx file or have it and maybe you could send it to me?
Thanks

Unfortunately, you will not only need Crystal.ocx, but a whole box of dll's.
I suggest that you either install Crystal Report on your computer,
or maybe you use a Setup of other VB Application that will install all the requested files, as it uses this ocx

Good luck

That  you could not use Crystal report with VB6 because VB6 setup exclude crystal report setup but VB5 setup include crystal report setup. So you must  be install Seagate crystal report  program which it is new version more than in VB5 and compatible with VB6. Good luck

Well, that's what I thought as well having just the ocx wouldn't work. So I guess I'm gonna have to install crystal report from VB5 then. I'll give angel the points because he/she was the closest. Oh by the way, I have intalled Crystal report from VB5 before and it worked with VB6 perfectly.
