Crystal Viewer is not viewing report

This is my code:

Dim crxApp As New CRAXDRT.Application
    Dim crxRpt As CRAXDRT.Report

    ' Open the report
    Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\PrtPicTkt.rpt")

    ' Clear any saved data to force the report to read from the db

    ' Set the connection for the report.
    crxRpt.Database.Tables(1).SetLogOnInfo "Macola02", "Macola02", "administrator", "odyssey"

    ' Set up the report source
    frmUserInput.CRViewer1.ReportSource = crxRpt
    'frmUserInput.CrystalReport1.ReportFileName = App.Path & "\PrtPicTkt.rpt"
    Do ' more than one report per run

        ' Create itemSelect
        ' Set up selection formula
       ' frmUserInput.CrystalReport1.SelectionFormula = itemSelect
        crxRpt.RecordSelectionFormula = itemSelect

        ' View report
        ' frmUserInput.CrystalReport1.Action = 1

When I execute this code it does not bring up the viewer.  If I uncomment the three CrystalReport1 statements , then I get the viewer but it is not persistent.  It lasts a second and then the next report is viewed without waiting for a response from the first view.

Can anyone tell me what's going wrong?

YOur code looks good.  What does itemSelect have?

You have your viewing in a loop thus it keeps trying to recreate the viewer.

Basic code I use is

Option Explicit
Private crApp As CRAXDRT.Application
Private crRpt As CRAXDRT.Report

'   Open report
    Set crApp = New CRAXDRT.Application

    Set crRpt = crApp.OpenReport(txtReportName, 1)

'   Set flags for CRViewer

    crRpt.MorePrintEngineErrorMessages = False
    crRpt.EnableParameterPrompting = False
    crRpt.DisplayProgressDialog = False

' Set the viewer's report source to the Report object
  Me.rptCRViewer.ReportSource = crRpt

Have a look at this whitepaper on displaying multiple reports in the same Viewer using the ReportSourceRoute: http://support.businessobjects.com/library/kbase/articles/c2004679.asp
