Hi Experts.

I'm currently creating an invoice software application. I know the printer function has been taken out of visual studio .net 2005 Enterprise. I have heard about crystal reports but dont know much about it. Someone told me that you can create invoices etc and be able to print them. When I go to there site they mention about connecting to servers /databases etc. Not too sure what this is about. Can the version with visual studio .net 2005 enterprise capable of production this type of paper work and if so is there any example to get me started with.

I appreciate your help with a crystal report novice!!!! LOL

Many Thanks
Lee

The version in .net is the same. Although the designer seems to be a little simpler.
But you can open any crystal file in the ide.

And its not to hard to get going with. Especially for a 1 page invoice !

As to connecting to a database, you can either create a record set in .net and use it in the report or get crystal to create the data.
There are many ways it can be run.


There are tonnes of examples on the Crystal website.
