Business Objects and VB

Hello,

I would like to know if it's possible to program BO and VB like we do with VB and Crystal reports.

Kindly provide me a link to any pdf / tutorial in this regards.

Thanks and best regards.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the company named Business Objects sells Crystal Reports - they are the SAME product.  Business Objects bought out the company that created Crystal Reports about 3 years ago, so the programming of BO reports is IDENTICAL to programming Crystal Reports.

The reporting part could be tied to the business tier (if you want to be used like a report server) or to the presentation tier (located on user computers).
