I am converting a VB5 application, which calls Crystal 5 reports. All required data base. user id and password is also passed to Crystal in order for it to access and retrieve data for display from an Oracle 8i data base. This VB application is using RDO calls and is running on NT environment.

I am trying to upgrade this application to VB6 using Crystal 9 while continuing to access our Oracle data base. I am having problems setting up the Link between VB6 and Crystal9. I am looking for a sample code from anyone that has done something similar to this

connect to the oracle db using ado(better to shift to ado if u are converting to vb6 after all)...and pass the parameter recordset to the function specified.

what i am coming to is that...rdo-ado conversion is generally and integral part of vb5-6 migration....i suggest u take the trouble of converting.....change the scope of ur conversion to include this also....otherwise a vb5-6 conversion is not v.useful
