I am a newbie to crystal reports and need some help.
I'm using the version that came with visual studio 2005.

here's the scenario.  i have 2 .rpt files that are fairly simliar but not exactly the same.  currently, in asp.net, they can select muliple rows from a datagrid, and depending on information from that row, i have to create the formula and pass it over to the report that the record belongs to for printing.  after they hit print, it creates one or more pdf files, depending on the conditions for each row selected.

what i would like to do is only call a single report, and depending on the conditions, that report would call another .rpt file (maybe in a subreport?)  and the result would be a pdf file that would have pages where some are from one rpt file and others from another

any suggestions on where to start?

You could use a subreport and link it to the main report on the condition.

The link between the main report and subreport is automatically added to the subreport record selection.

depending on conditions for each record in the results, i want to call the specific report, and not show the other 3, im a bit lost on how to do this

Assuming you know the conditioin in the main report you can conditionally suppress the subreport or the section it is in

Right click the subreport
Click FORMAT SUBRPEPORT
Click the COMMON TAB
Click the formula button to the right of SUPPRESS
ENter the formula that evaluates TRUE when you want to suppress.
