Please Suggest Its urgent.

Dim crxApp As CRAXDDRT.Application

    Dim crxRpt As CRAXDDRT.Report

    Set crxApp = New CRAXDDRT.Application


    If optIncrLetter = True Then

       Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Incerment_Letter.rpt")

    ElseIf OptMidterm = True Then

        Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Mid_Term_Letters.rpt")

    End If


    crxRpt.Database.Tables(1).Location = txtMainFile
