You want to set the action = 1


crystalreport1.action=1

Before that you need to set you logon information ect.

Either in the Crystal IDE Report designer, uncheck the option under the file menu that says "Save Data With Report".

Or, in VB, before setting the action = whatever, say:

Report1.DiscardSavedData = True
Report1.Action = ......

mdougan is right. i too had the same problem in the initial stages.

in crystal ActivexControl The default value of DiscardSavedData will be false. Make it true and Run the report.

to mdougan: I dont think **save data with report** will work.

Another way is to edit the report and turn off the sve data with report flag and then save the report.  That way you will never have saved data with the report.  I do that for all my reports (over 75) and I always get the latest data.

kcm76 and mlmcc, that is what I was saying

"in the Crystal IDE Report designer, uncheck the option under the file menu that says "Save Data With Report"."

As far as I know, the way it works is that if you leave that checked (it is the default) then the data is saved when you run the report through the Crystal IDE.  But, if you never save it through Crystal, you don't have to do anything in VB.  However, if you have saved the data through Crystal, you can discard it in VB with the DiscardSavedData flag.

You can have the data saved with the report and still run it. I have a scheduling tool that I use that workes off of saving the report with data, and then I pass it dates daily, and it reruns the report will all the parameters that I had saved it with, but updates the report with new data. I know for a fact it can be dont, I am doing it. The main issue he is having is the crystalreport1.action=0 if it is 0 then it isnt going to do anything. It has to be set to 1 and this is also in the samples from the crystal website...
