VB Form to Crystal Reports Unbound Field (No Database Involved)
Posted on 2005-03-30
OK, I'm wondering if someone can point me in the direction of a good example of the following:
I have a form in VB6 that requires user input, after which it performs a couple of calculations, and the form becomes a printout that should be issued to others. Now, originally I was just using the PrintForm method, but my client would prefer it be done in Crystal Reports so I can make the formatting of the Print Out a little better.
Thing is, I've never done a Crystal Report that wasn't tied to a Database, and I haven't been able to find a good example on how to do this. It only needs to be done once, that's all there is to this application.
I read somewhere that I'd need to use a CDO Rowset and an Array to pass the information from the VB6 Form to the Crystal Report.
Can someone point me in the direction of an example of the above, or maybe offer an alternative.
As I said, it's just passing information from the form into the Report for printing purposes.
