crLoadConfirmation = New LoadConfirmation

                    count = crLoadConfirmation.Database.Tables.Count()
                    Debug.WriteLine("LoadConfirmationCount= " & count)
                    '==============================================
                    'crLoadConfirmation = changeLCReportLocation(crLoadConfirmation)
                    '======================================

                    crParameterDiscreteValue = New ParameterDiscreteValue
                    crParameterDiscreteValue.Value = load

                    crParameterField = New ParameterField
                    crParameterField.ParameterFieldName = "LoadNo"
                    crParameterField.CurrentValues.Add(crParameterDiscreteValue)

                    crParameterFields = New ParameterFields
                    crParameterFields.Add(crParameterField)
                    Me.CrystalReportViewer1.ParameterFieldInfo = crParameterFields
                    Me.CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = crLoadConfirmation
                   
                    crLoadConfirmation.PrintToPrinter(1, False, 1, 1)

That is a sample of my code. If i use the same code and open the report in the Report Viewer my data is present. Printing it this way The structure of the report is there, but no data is present.


here is a code sample of wher I use the Report Viewer for the same report:
 ''CR Variables
                    crLoadConfirmation = New LoadConfirmation

                    count = crLoadConfirmation.Database.Tables.Count()
                    Debug.WriteLine("LoadConfirmationCount= " & count)
                    '==============================================
                    'crLoadConfirmation = changeLCReportLocation(crLoadConfirmation)
                    '======================================

                    crParameterDiscreteValue = New ParameterDiscreteValue
                    crParameterDiscreteValue.Value = load

                    crParameterField = New ParameterField
                    crParameterField.ParameterFieldName = "LoadNo"
                    crParameterField.CurrentValues.Add(crParameterDiscreteValue)

                    crParameterFields = New ParameterFields
                    crParameterFields.Add(crParameterField)
                    Me.CrystalReportViewer1.ParameterFieldInfo = crParameterFields
                    Me.CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = crLoadConfirmation

The report views ok?  Can you print it from the viewer?

Try
crLoadConfirmation.PrintOut False

 crLoadConfirmation.PrintToPrinter(1, False, 1, 1)

why are yuo printing the only 1st page

if you want to print every page you should use
  crLoadConfirmation.PrintToPrinter(1, False, 0, 0)
and for the sake of it i will run this code before you set the viewer's datasource

crLoadConfirmation.SetParameterValue("LoadNo", crParameterDiscreteValue.Value)
                    crLoadConfirmation.PrintToPrinter(1, False, 1, 1)

actually I am printing only one page because there is just one page.

This is the answer to my problem, i discovered it on my own. Because the report is no longer actually using the viewer I have to pass the parameter value to the report and not the viewer control.
