Multiple copies of a report based on a summary field

Looking for a VB code to use in Crystal Reports 8.5 that will print multiple copies of a same report (pick ticket), based on a summed field, (total cube). For example, if [totalcube] is <=2800, 1 pick ticket prints - [totalcube] <=5600, 2 print - [totalcube]  <=8400, 3 print - [totalcube] <=11200, 4 print - etc         Thanks

After reading your question for a while, I think I begin to understand what you are up to now. Well... I guess I'm kinda a slow thinker. Let's see.... what's the option.
I'll try giving a solution where you will print automatically from VB, even without viewing the report(ticket).If you want another solution we'll try to find some. Here goes :

      Dim I as integer        'I will be the number of tickets you want to print
      dim CrxReport As CRAXDRT.Report  
      if [totalcube]  <=2800 then I = 1
      elseif  [totalcube]  >2800 and [totalcube] <=5600 then I = 2
      ......
      ......
      ...... ' and so on
     
      ' then you delcare the open report stuff..... (I assume you already got the code)
      ' after that put this single but most important line :
      CrxReport.PrintOut False, I               ' this will print the same report as many as I false = without promting, use true if you want to prompt printer select and number of copy stuff
       'If the report contain more than 1 pages, say 2 use
       CrxReport.PrintOut False, I, , 1, 2      'just learn the function for more options.

Hope that help...
If you got any other question, just ask.

Thanks for providing some feedback Z03niE. Can you explain or provide the code to declare the "open report stuff"? My report I'm trying to work this out on is called "sowfba4.rpt". (what do you expect from a network guy)?  Thanks again, bella459

Give me a break Mike.......
You may see some example from Crystal report on VB codes to open report.
Does your report use static data? I mean the content doens't change based on some data from a database ?
Maybe you would liket to see this link.

I got some report opening stuff with recordset as datasource in that link. Try learning something from the link. If there's something that you don't understand, just ask me. OK
Thnx.

Thanks again...No the report does not use static data. Data comes from a few ODBC tables. I'll check out the llink you provided above though.
