Hi
I have a c# application that interfaces with various crystal reports
I need to be able to get the total page count of a crystal report.

I cannot seek to the last page because the table that the report is reading from is 500,000+ records
I am not accessing the crystal reports viewer just the report document.

My intentions are to print the entire report (40,000 + pages)
I would like to burst the report into 1000 page increments and then send the print jobs to different printers
(I will alternate between 2 printers).
I have already written code to burst the report based on different fields in the report but I do not kow how to get the number of pages. So I can stop the printer job. When I need to.

Any help would be appreciated.

Okay, I figured this one out...

as I loop through the pages in an infinite loop. when the startPage exceeds the total number of pages to be exported
an exception is thrown.
I catch the exception and automatically finish printing.
________________________
int batchSize= 1000;
int StartPage= 0;
int EndPage = 0;
try{
   while (1){

   ...
   endPage = endPage + batchSize;
   reportDoc.PrintToPrinter(printerName,startPage,endPage,...);
   startPage = endPage+1;
  ...
  }//end while
}Catch(PrinterException pe){
   ErrorMessage = e.Message();
}

____________________
What will happen with the code above.
Example: Crystal Report Document: 10 pages
BatchSize: 3 pages

1st Run Through >> pages 1-3 are printed (page ranges 0-3)
2nd Run Through >>pages 4-7 are printed (page ranges 4--7)
3rd Run Through >> pages 8-10 are printed (the page ranges 8--11)
4th Run Through >> PrintException Thrown
