You need to place the Crystal Reports Control on your VB Form. Set the report property to your report, maybe some other properties. Set the action property to 1 to execute the report.

CR1.action=1

I need to use sql for reporting i.e., runtime assignment of either recordset / query as such will be helpful. Any other suggestion is appreciated.
thanks

   CReport1.PrintFileName = ""
    CReport1.ReportFileName = ""
    CReport1.ReportSource = crptDataControl
    CReport1.Destination = CrptToWindow
    Data1.RecordSource = "SELECT..."
    Data1.Refresh
    CReport1.Action = 1

This example works if you can use data control
i dont know what do you want to do with the SQL text, do you have the same output for every sql that you want to send or it can change?

if it can change this example works
