I'm trying to print a report using Crystral 8. In VB I've this code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Me.CR.SelectionFormula = "{FACTURA.num_factura}=frmfactura.textbox1.text"
    Me.CR.Action = 1
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.CR.ReportFileName = "D:\dev\InFactu\proGym\Reports\Factura.rpt"
End Sub

The problem is that I get the report, but without any data. What wrong / missing.

Pls help me!  Thanks.

currently the report is only showing records, where the field {FACTURA.num_factura} has the  value "frmfactura.textbox1.text". you need to place the frmfactura.textbox1.text outside the string literal.

so try chaning this lineMe.CR.SelectionFormula = "{FACTURA.num_factura}=frmfactura.textbox1.text"

to something simliar to this if the field value is a number
Me.CR.SelectionFormula = "{FACTURA.num_factura}= " & frmfactura.textbox1.text

or if it's a string
Me.CR.SelectionFormula = "{FACTURA.num_factura}= '" & frmfactura.textbox1.text & "'"
