I have Visual Basic 6.0 enterprise
I have installed crystal reports 4.6 from the Cd
I need to change the datasource of my reports so that the Access database can be installed to different locations if need be.
 
Apparently I need the Crystal report engine 7 object library (cpeaut32.dll) to do this .
However it doesn't seem to be on on the VB CDs and I couldnt find it on the Microsoft or the Seagate websites .  
Can anyone help.

Thanks dekeldate for your comment

I dont undertand why  Crystal reports for Visual Basic (product 4.6.1.0) is distributed on the VB 6 enteprise CD at all if the object model lib is extra and chargeable. If you need an additional  lib to change database location How can you distribute applications assuming that the database location is always in the same location ?  

Is this why they have included DataReports with VB6 ?
The  only way to get round the problem that I can see is to use the Datareport rather than Crystal Reports . I am unwilling to buy another another Crystal Reports package as I am not convinced it will do what I want it do.

I must admit I find the whole thing very puzzling. Have I missed something ?

It does sound rather puzzling.

I have not had to use Crystal Reports myself, as most of the work I do usualy needs XML or HTML output, so I don't think I can even comment on this.:o(

>>Missed something?
Seems more like Microsoft has! ;-\

Hope DataReports will work for you :o)

I haven't used the cr that came with vb in years, but in cr 8 you make your report.  in vb code you assign a connection and a recordset to a property of the cr engine.  did it not work that way in the old cr?  I would think it would have had to or no one would use it.  I can also almost guarantee cr 8 will do anything you want it to.
