Setting Dynamic Path to Crystal Reports - RDC - VB
Posted on 2004-04-29
I want to set the database path of crystal reports dynamically at run time and refresh the data based on the dsn connection.
I have to use multiple databases in a project. Back end is MSAccess and Front End VB. The connection to the database is done using ODBC automatic dsn code. The reports are desinged
using CRViewer(RDC). The structure of all the databases are identical and only the stored data is different (For example sale details of current year in a database and the previous financial year in another database and so on.)
In the application, the connection to the particular database is done by selecting the available database and then making a dsn connectoin to the selected database at run time (using automatic dsn code).
Thus When the database path is changed dynamically, the new set of data from the latest database connection is to be refreshed in the crystal report. How can this be achieved?
