VB coding for Crystal report version 6 and above.

Hi,
How can I code in VB to let the user know how many pages for that particular report? And also allow user to select from start page to end page for user to preview or print?
Help appreciated.

Thanks.

Are you using Report OCX in VB to access CR6. If so, the report itself will have all these options, when you do,

CrystalReport1.Action = 1

You could be able to preview, and also print clicking the print button either all pages or selected pages.

You dont need to code these things.

If you need details, let me know.

perhaps he/she want to know the details even before the report is loaded.

I suggest to make a test report with the margines you specified, and then find the max. no. of records per page.
fix this no. in your application, then evry time you output a report, you have to get the no. of records in the recordset that will be supplied to the crystal report, use the max. recs/page and the no. of records in the recordset to find the no. of page for the report.

if you try this solution you have to include all filters you needed in the recordset you will supply to crystal report, and not use any filters with the crystal report itself.

i hope it helps.

frankylew,
I was waiting to get response from coolkgy regarding that.

coolkgy,
Ok, if that is the case, you do the following. Hope you already have created the report using Crystal report and say, the report name is report1.rpt and is located in your VB application path. To open it from VB do this.:


1) Click Project/Components menu option.
   Select Crystal Report Control.

2) Put the Crystal Report Control to a form, from the toolbox.

3) Add a Command Button to form.

4) Put the code to Command1's Click Event as below:
'*******

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    CrystalReport1.ReportFileName = App.Path & "\report1.rpt"
    CrystalReport1.ReportTitle = "The Title you want"
    CrystalReport1.Destination = crptToWindow
    CrystalReport1.Action = 1
End Sub

'*******


Hope This Helps.

Hi coolkgy,
It appears that you have forgotten this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days. I will ask a Community Support Moderator to:

    Save as PAQ -- No Refund.
    *** we don't know if Crystal Reports is the issue, so can't really say anyone is correct.

coolkgy, Please DO NOT accept this comment as an answer.
