Hello All,

I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.  I am trying to preview a crystal report using a vbscript but I am getting an error that the Preview function is not recognized.  Does anyone know how to preview a crystal report using a vbscript.  Crystal version I am using is 11.5 SP6

I am using crystalruntime.application.11 as my object.

Any helps is appreciated

    I am not sure that you can.  I don't find any examples.

    Crystal requires a viewer which must sit on a web form or windows form.

    You could write a .Net application that does the work and schedule it through VBS.
