CR 8.5 Pro, VB 6. Need a viewer!
Posted on 2004-04-16
Okay. I've found the simpledemo.zip on crystaldecisions.com but it requires Crystal Reports Developer edition (at least for the control in VB6).
I don't need to actually develop reports or anything via VB6. I only need to view pre-made .rpt files that pull data from an ODBC connection. Does anyone know how this can be done? I've downloaded the crystal reports active X controls, however I'm not sure how to use them.
Basically the problem is if we publish the full version of crystal the end users have too much control and can modify reports. We just want them to be able to view (though printing and exporting to excel may be nice features).
