Hi Problem with Crystal rpt printing

Hi
I am having a problem with my project and crystal reports
i am using vb6 and crystal reports 7

i have about 100 reports in the project
now i have noticied that sometimes if i click on the printer icon in a report, to print, it does not print, all that comes up is the print dialog box, then if u click ok, then it does not send thru the report to the printer que

has anyone else experienced this problem ?]

You might try reinstalling VB or Crystal.  Make sure you have the reports and the project backed up to disk (preferably twice)

Do the reports print eventually after trying to print several times?  Or do some reports not print at all?

It seems like now all the reports do not print at all

so it is weird, like some sort of corruption

Hi there mlmcc
I have found the problem
crystal is weird

my dev pc was hooked upto a printer on a pc on the network,
Someone removed the printer of the pc and put on another pc with out telling me. So what happended when i opened the source oriject, all the reports where pointing to a printer that no longer existed. So when i comiled the new version of the softwate, it all stopped printing.

So i then had to go manually into each report and reset the printer to the new pc i am printing to . Also in each report the report paper size then defaulted to Letter in stead f A4. Anyway once i had gone thu all the reports, i recompiled and tested and it worked 100 %

Interesting hey
well that is one for the archives for crystal.

Thanx for the input anyway

here are the points

thanx

Cheers

I agree.  I'll have to watch for that as we roll out our application and all the reports.
