VB 5 and crystal report 8.5
Posted on 2004-04-18
I've made a crystal report rpt file which churns out reports using an odbc connection with the db.
problem is, i have no idea how to let users enter variables (dates, to be exact) .
so i looked around and decided to use VB 5 (yes i know it's freakin old) as a front end to choose a date , and then pass the variables to the report .
I've added a crystal report control on the form and i can do a CrystalReport1.PrintReport .
how do i pass the variables to the rpt file, and how do i get them into the report's sql ? this is my first time using crystal report so i'm pretty lost.
also, i noticed that to refresh the data in the report , i need to key in the password again. how do i define the db connection and the password/username in vb ?
