I Wish to print a report automatically from VB using CR ,

The code should be
CRViewer1.PrintReport

but it will only show up a print menu to let you press to
print from page to page.

What will be the parameter to pass in to let it printout automatically?

Also how to pass filed parameter to print a specify range of report?

I used to use the object of "Crystal report" and pass parameter through it.


Thanks very much.

sssssss,

To Print directly to the printer you will need to set the "Destination" property. And to select the range you will need to use the "PrinterStartPage" And "PrinterStopPage" properties.

Here are the details of these three properties along with examples:

---------------------------------------------------
Destination

Description

Specifies the destination to which your report is to be printed (Window, Printer, or File).

Runtime Usage
[form.]CrystalReport.Destination[= Destination%]
For example:
CrystalReport1.Destination = 0
     
«sends the specified report to a print window.»

Remarks
Select one of the following print destinations:
0      0 =Window (sends the report to a print window)     crptToWindow
1      1 =Printer (sends the report to a printer)     crptToPrinter
2      2 =File (prints the report to a disk file for printing at a later time or for importing into other applications. If you select this property, you will also have to set the PrintFileName and PrintFileType properties.)     crptToFile
3      3 =EMail via MAPI (sends the report to another person on your network via MAPI Email (Microsoft Mail). The report is attached to the EMail letter in the format specified by the PrintFileType property.)     crptMapi
     
Availability
Design time; Runtime
---------------------------------------------------

To Specify the Print Range you will need to use PrinterStartPage And PrinterStopPage.  
---------------------------------------------------
PrinterStartPage

Description

Sets the first page to be printed.
Runtime Usage
[form.]CrystalReport.PrinterStartPage[= StartPage%]
For example:
CrystalReport1.PrinterStartPage = 7
     
«Specifies that printing is to begin with page 7 of the report.»

Remarks
If a value less than or equal to 0 is used for PrinterStartPage, the value is ignored and printing starts with page 1.

Availability
Design time, Runtime


PrinterStopPage

Description
Sets the last page to be printed.

Runtime Usage
[form.]CrystalReport.PrinterStopPage[=StopPage%]
For example:
CrystalReport1.PrinterStopPage = 12
     
«Specifies that the printing is to end with page 12 of the report.»

Remarks
Use a value of -1 for PrinterStopPage to indicate that printing is to continue through to the last page.

Availability
Design time, Runtime
---------------------------------------------------

Hope this helps

only use these two property to print a crystal file directly to printer:
    crp1.Destination = crptToPrinter
    crp1.Action = 1
