Simple Report with VB6
Posted on 2005-03-28
I have a small accounting package designed and running in VB6 (very simple) I want to be able to print reports based on user inputs, i.e. "SELECT PaymentsOut FROM Accounts WHERE ....." which will display the results in a form ready for printing. I have looked at using Crystal Reports which seems like the ideal choice but is too complicated at this stage for me to use as I am running out of time. So I have decided to go the Report Designer route that built into VB6. Will the report designer allow me to display records based on quires generated by user inputs? If you could offer me a simple approach using Crystal reports I would be interested. I have created reports using the report generator/wizard but I am at a loss on how to modify this to display specific quires. I other word the crystal report will generate a report of all invoices and their details, I would like to be able to display the details of just one invoice.
I am running out of time in my submission of a final year project hence the smell of desperation about this question!!
