VB6 and Access 2002 problem.

 Hello experts!
  I'm using VB6 and Access 2002 for my database development. In my program, I want to display report and I think Access Report may solve the problem. I search experts-exchange and I find the code:

Public app As Application
Set app = New Access.Application
app.OpenCurrentDatabase "C:\db1.mdb"
app.DoCmd.OpenReport "EmpReport", acViewPreview

  But nothing happen after I run this code, do you know how to fix this? And, I want the report will be displayed in my App, not in the Access window, how can I do this with VB6 and Access 2002? If at my user machine, only older Access version is installed, will my program run properly?

  Thank you.

app.DoCmd.Maximize is VBA not vb6
    Have a look at the code, the person is manipulating Access (via VBA) through VB6, or at least this was the attempt.

    Is your database located in the directory "C:\" with a name of "db1.mdb"?
    Do you have a Report named "EmpReport" in that database?

    As for making the Report open in VB6 and not Access, that's not possible, it has to use Access since it is an Access Report.  Have you considered just using a Data Report in VB6?  Or maybe even Crystal Reports?

 I also notice that, after run these commands, although Access or report don't appear, I see Access in the Task Manager (process tab). Do you have any suggestion?
  Thank you.
ok, I don't have VB6 in front of me, but it looks like the problem is that you forgot to make the object visible.

It'll be something like this:
app.Visible = True

Put that after the line that opens the Report and you should be fine.

Give that a try and you should see the report come up.
