Crystal Report v7  SelectionFormula

Hi all expert,

I have a VB6 program using Crystal Report Control trying to print a Crystal Report (v7).
The codes for printing worked fine.
     crysReport.Connect = PRptConn
     crysReport.ReportFileName = PReportPath & vRptName & ".rpt"
     crysReport.Action = crptToPrinter

But now I want to add codes to do something like we do directly in Crystak Report (v7):  Report  > Edit Selection Formula > Record...
I have a problem trying to pass a text value to  .SelectionFormula. I even tried to replace the single quotes with Chr(34) or Chr(39), but neither of then worked.
     crysReport.Connect = PRptConn
     crysReport.ReportFileName = PReportPath & vRptName & ".rpt"
     crysReport.SelectionFormula = "{TableName.FieldName}= '" & vValue &"'"
     crysReport.Action = crptToPrinter

I got an error message below:
                Run-time error '20515'
      Error in formula <Record_selection>.
      .
      .
      The remaining text does not appear to be part of the formula.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance and best regards.

I think you may need a space before the =
Try this

crysReport.SelectionFormula = "{TableName.FieldName} = '" & vValue.Text &"'"

I usually use

crysReport.ReplaceSelectionFormula  "{TableName.FieldName} = '" & vValue.Text &"'"

I can remeber having a similar problem previously, much like some of the API calls strings must be Null Terminated. I found that by appending your string with a vbnull that worked for me and passing the Selection formula via a string rathern than directly into the object.

Example

crysFormulaString = "{TableName.FieldName}= '" & vValue & vbnull
crysReport.SelectionFormula = crysFormulaString

or  I have also used the Cstr() function

crysFormulaString = Cstr("{TableName.FieldName}= '" & vValue)
crysReport.SelectionFormula = crysFormulaString

Hope this helps !

Thank you both very much for your quick response!!!!
I still got the same error when I tried the both solution using .SelectionFormula.

But it works using .ReplaceSelectionFormula.

Thanks a zillion for your help!!
