How to create a Crystal Report Form Letter in C# .Net 2005?

Hi experts,

I  tried to find a sample application for how to create a Crystal Report Form Letter using C# .Net 2005 on Google and EE without luck. There are tons of samples for creating reports out there, but not single one for a letter. I even downloaded all the sample applications from the Business Object web site. There is no sample for Form letter.

Can anyone please tell me where I can get a sample?

Thank you for helping.

I am not aware of any.  Crystal doesn't really have a built in merge capability.

I assume the form letter is written and includes "variables" that need to be replaced with database items.

The best you could do would be to write a formula to do the replacement like

Replace({LetterTextField}, {StingtoFind},{DatabaseFieldtoReplace})


Hi mlmcc,

Please check out this: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa287931(VS.71).aspx

I am sure the CR and .Net work together can create a letter, jus haven't found  the solution yet.
