This could be a really stupid question so I apologize in advance.. How do you select the export destination as MAPI in the .Net CrystalReportViewer? It was real straight forward is vb6. Everything I read says you just select MAPI as the destination, but where? My merge module is set to include the MAPI export driver so I don't think that's the problem.  Thanks

In the versiions I am familiar with, the list of export options is built from the available export dlls.

Here is a list of supported features

What MAPI mail system do you have?

I'm using excahnge, I can export to MAPI in code. I just can't figure out how to allow the user to do it via the viewer. The vb6 view has it.

I don't use the .Net viewer so I don't know.  I know the VB6 viewer builds the list based on the available export dlls.

Check this tutorial starting on page 191.  I f I read it correctly you have to add the options through code.

I wound up doing it in code.
>> Added an eMail button to the report viewer toolstrip
>> On click I export the report to .PDF the attach it to an outlook mal item the display the mail item so the user can enter the email address and any message they want.
This bascally emulates the way it worked with the vb6 report viewer
