I'm using the following to quickly display an existing report.  However, the 'drilldown' is not coming visible.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Static CrystRep   As CRPEAuto.Report
Dim RepApp        As Object

Set RepApp = CreateObject("Crystal.CRPE.Application")
Set CrystRep = RepApp.OpenReport(rpt)
With CrystRep
    .Preview rpt
End With

Try adding the two lines shown to your WITH..END WITH block

With CrystRep
   .PrintWindowOptions.CanDrillDown = True
   .PrintWindowOptions.HasGroupTree = True
   .Preview rpt
End With

Thanks, worked just fine.  Where can I find documentaion that illustrates those 'options' available? I'm using Crystal 8,5 and it didn't come with a developer help file (although the document says to 'see the developr.help')
Thanks again

The developer help file is included with CR8.5 developer edition and up.  If you have it, it is not added to the start menu, nor is it available from within CR.

On my system, installed to default directories, the developer help file in at "C:\Program Files\Seagate Software\Crystal Reports\Developer Files\Help\Developr.hlp"

Cut and paste into a new shortcut and see if you have it.
