I want to connect to an oracle db and create a report for each record in the table and export it to a pdf file giving it a new file  name. This report has many sub reports (11). I want to use vb 6 and I have 85, 9, 10 and XI versions of Crystal reports

I would look into a 3rd-party tool like

Visual Cut
http://www.milletsoftware.com/Visual_CUT.htm

You can build your own application


Here is the basic code for CR8 using the RDC.  It shpould be close for the versiions you have.
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\MyRepots\My_Report.rpt",1)


'
'   Set Crystal flags
'
    crRpt.EnableParameterPrompting = False
    crRpt.DiscardSavedData

'
'   Set export options
'
    crRpt.ExportOptions.DestinationType = crEDTEMailMAPI
    crRpt.ExportOptions.MailToList = "SomeBody@SomeISP"
    crRpt.ExportOptions.MailSubject = "Todays Crystal Report"
    crRpt.ExportOptions.MailMessage = "Here is the newest report"
    crRpt.ExportOptions.FormatType = crEFTPortableDocFormat

    crRpt.Export False
