In my .net vb programs I store large amounts of plain text data in specific directories. I need some sample code written in .net vb 2008 that will allow me to print this data using Crytal Reports  2008's  formatting.
This is what I require :-

1)      How do I create a Crystal Report  that has a header that consist of page number and date. In the body of the report the code should insert the text I have stored in a specific directory from my .net vb program.

2)      Once the above report is created I need a sample of code that will allow me to utilize the above report from .net vb.

Basically I need a crystal report so that when I do print my text (no matter how large this may be) it will be formatted with a header on each page . .

Thanking you in advance

To the best of my knowledge you can't do it in the .Net version of Crystal.

Thanks for the prompt reply .  . .

Would there be a workaround to this?  

I do have Crystal Reports 2008 and have created reports using a CSV connection (ADO.net) ; but these reports were using columnar data . . .

In your case it might be that you have a single column and can use the file as the source.

How large are the files?

If they are less than a page, you might be able to use an OLE object.

What I have done is created a ODBC connection to the text file and have also created the crystal report . .

Now what I need is some code to open this report in .net VB ; the name of the report is test.rpt and it's in a directory called \compu.

My data is about 100 pages or more . .
