How can I just pritn a CRXI report from VB6 without going thru the ActiveXReportViewer and adding the report in as a Designer. Really Dont do a lot of viewing of reports Just want them to go directly to the printer.  Or am I going to have to "hide" the viewer and then print it?  Which just seems like a waste.

Thanks in advance

Here is the basic code for printing.  You will need to add CRAXDRT.DLL to the references. (Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Runtime

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

'
'   Check if report is already in use
'
        If IsObject(crRpt) Then
           Set crRpt = Nothing
        End If

'
'   Open report
'
        Set crApp = New CRAXDRT.Application

        Set crRpt = crApp.OpenReport("C:\Crystal\MyReports\MyReport.rpt", 1)

'
'  Filter the data if desired
'
        crRpt.RecordSelectionFormula = "{SomeField} = 'SomeValue'"

'
'   Set flags for CRViewer
'
        crRpt.MorePrintEngineErrorMessages = False
        crRpt.EnableParameterPrompting = False
        crRpt.DiscardSavedData

'
'   Print Report
'
      crRpt.DisplayProgressDialog = False
      crRpt.PrintOut False

End Sub
