VB6 app exporting crystal report to Excel (Oracle 8 database)

sodris used Ask the Experts™

I created a report in Crystal reports 6. When exporting from the report I'm given all the export format options.
When I export the report through the code in VB6 I'm not given all the export options, including Excel!
I set up a test app and used a report created with an Oracle 7 database and I was given all the export format options in the code....using the same test app I used a report set up using an Oracle 8 database and it wouldn't work.

The original message that sometimes appears is the out of date or missing dll's.

Has anyone any ideas?

Thanks for your help mlmcc but that didn't work.

We have that download on the system but it doesn't seem to make a difference to this problem.

I created a report using an Oralce 8 database with an Oracle 7 driver through the ODBC and this seems to work.  But when I create the report using the Oracle 8 driver it doesn't work!!
