How to verify if a Crystal Report as saved data with VB6

Posted on 2006-03-23

I created a small vb6 application to allow users to view reports without being connected to the database. However, the reports need the 'save data with report' option checked. Meaning that, if the report needs to look for the db, if will cause an error. I want to prevent that...

Is there anyway to find out, when the report is opened, if there is data saved on the report....

I'm using crviewer9.dll

    how was the report developed.  Whether it was in CR designer or VS .Net, both have the option to "save report with data".  Open the report in the application it was developed in and check to make sure that option was checked.

    I think you could check that with a boolean function oRpt.HasSavedData.
