I am attempting to Export the definition of a Crystal Report using VB.net and Visual Studio. The API offers several export format types (PDF, Rich Text, Excel, etc.), but none to export the report definition. Is this something that simply cannot be done? Or am I missing something?

Report definition is not supported by the .Net Versiions of Crystal

You may also have to use the CR XI dlls in the application rather than the .Net versions.

Can you point me in the direction of some documentation on how to do that? Or is that handled by the integration between CR Developer and Visual Studio?

When you add references to the application you have to add the .Net modules for CR XI not the ones that came with VS.

Understood. I think I am going to take a different approach here though. I am going to take advantage of the API to get the report definition information out myself. It will allow more flexibility than trying to dump the definition into a text file, then extract information from there.

mlmcc, thank you for your efforts.
