A few questions below need experts advice and clue.

1. Is the a free report object (ocx or dll) in the Visual Basic 6 that can use to product the report? As you know that crystal report no longer in the Visual Basic 6.

2. Can include the photo/pic in the report? This report is print the employee details. So at the right hand corner, the employee picture will be printed.

Please help.

Thank you.

Crystal Report is strill included in VB6 (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;193336).

Free alternatives are Office product (Word, Excel) because they are almost always already install and sometime Access is also there.

No there is none. However, I have recently tries to generate HTML reports in VB through Webbrowser control and writing HTML code through. But this will be like reinventing the wheel. Plus with Webbrowser control the printing abilities are very limited.
