i have this error.
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Three things irksome about this error..

1) All was working fine I tweeked stuff not at all involved with this module or code and have an issue.
3) you can see I instatited a new instence in the first code line of the "try"
2) I could understand if this was a message at the first use of the field.. But it is not.. I load it, add parameter info to it.. Then it blows at the last line.. crReportDocument.Export();

public void CreateEnglishPdf(string ReportPathAndName, string PDFPathAndName, string UnitType,string UnitNo,

         string Name_SP_Table, DataSet ds,string rptType)

    {

        this.Name_SP_Table = Name_SP_Table;

        this.UnitType = UnitType;

        this.UnitNo = UnitNo;

        

        //Call the report from its stored directory

        try

        {

            //setStoredProcedure(Name_SP_Table);

            //Reportdataset = ds;

            //setDataset(UnitType,UnitNo);

            crReportDocument = new CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument();

            crReportDocument.Load(ReportPathAndName);



            //Apply logon information to the main report and all sub reports

            setLogon();

            //UnitType

            ParameterValues ParmValue = new ParameterValues();

            ParameterDiscreteValue ParamDiscreteValue = new ParameterDiscreteValue();

            ParamDiscreteValue.Value = UnitType;

            ParmValue.Add(ParamDiscreteValue);

            crReportDocument.DataDefinition.ParameterFields["@UnitType"].ApplyCurrentValues(ParmValue);

            //crReportDocument.SetParameterValue("@UnitType", UnitType); 

            //UnitNo

            ParameterValues ParmValue2 = new ParameterValues();

            ParameterDiscreteValue ParamDiscreteValue2 = new ParameterDiscreteValue();

            ParamDiscreteValue2.Value = UnitNo;

            ParmValue2.Add(ParamDiscreteValue2);

            crReportDocument.DataDefinition.ParameterFields["@UnitNo"].ApplyCurrentValues(ParmValue2);

            //crReportDocument.SetParameterValue("@UnitNo", UnitNo); 



            crDiskFileDestinationOptions = new DiskFileDestinationOptions();

            crDiskFileDestinationOptions.DiskFileName = PDFPathAndName;

            crExportOptions = crReportDocument.ExportOptions;

            crExportOptions.DestinationOptions = crDiskFileDestinationOptions;

            crExportOptions.ExportDestinationType = ExportDestinationType.DiskFile;

            if (rptType == "PDF")

            {

                crExportOptions.ExportFormatType = ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat;

            }

            else if (rptType == "doc")

            {

                crExportOptions.ExportFormatType = ExportFormatType.WordForWindows;

            }



            crReportDocument.Export();



        }

        catch (Exception)

        {

            throw;

        }

        finally

        {

            crReportDocument.Close();

            crReportDocument.Dispose();

        }

Hi,

I have some questions about your problem:

(1) In which line exception raised?

(2) Are you sure string ReportPathAndName is not null?

(3) "I tweeked stuff not  at all involved with this module" So what is that stuff?

Regards,
V.S.Saini

Found it, but thanks for the attempt.. And it was in the tweeking.
I altered the Stored Procedure that a CR was loading from.. this caused I don't know what, but the end of the SP had a Select statement that defined the Fields of the CR.. When I tested the SP in SQL all looked good, Select statement created the output. But CR no longer liked it. I went in and said update the Datasource, CR says "Datasource updated" no problem.. But, the table is now a no field table (which it doesn't even tell me I lost fields I ame using while updating..)  Just when you run it blows up, but not with a recognizable error..

Could never fix the SP and have the modifications I wanted (which involved no change to field layout, but more update queries to filter the data).. So I pushed the results to a table, and had crystal link to the table.
