Posted on 2007-09-28

I`m using the  crystal reports CRAXDDRT.dll from VB in access to view crystal reports within an Access form.  What I want is to programmatically load a crystal report, refresh the data, and export in to word.rtf format (without any input from the user)  Then, I`d launch msword to view the rtf file. I guess that`s two questions ... so I`ll start another thread for how to start a windows application from a form in access.
So I have the code to load a report and view it in access, but what`s the syntax for exporting... is there a refernce somewhere that describes all the methods and there parameters...

    I don't know if it exists or not.  Check the Crystal (Business Objects) documentation page

    Some sample export applications

    Do you really need to use CRAXDDRT?  It may require a runtime license for each user.

    The similar CRAXDRT.DLL library is free to distribute.  It is a subset of CRAXDDRT.  It just doesn't include any of the royalty required functions.
