Are you doing something else in the loop as well? If not, showing multiple reports in same viewer within a loop does not make sense. Are you printing the reports? If so then use the PrintToPrinter method directly without showing the report


yes code cruiser i am not using the crystal report. i do direct printing in the loop. just for checking i use the crystal report viewer. even if i give directly i get the above same error if there are more than 1 report to print in the loop. i need to know how should i close /dispose the report object after each print

Try setting the reportobject to Nothing. Then every so often, call the GC.Collect()


Dim Temp As Integer
For i as integer ...
   Temp += 1
   ReportDoc = Nothing
   If Temp = 10 Then
      Temp = 0
   End If

How many reports are you trying to open?
There are limits set in Crystal to the number of open connections.  That number is affected by how the report is built as I believe subreports count as a connection.

What other code are you using since the subreport ending should close the opened report document and you haven't really done anything with it other than show it in the viewer.


it doesnt have any subreports. There can be more than 30 reports to print in the loop. its chosen by the user. I want to know where should i call this dispose and close method. Is it in the calling form or on the report printing form. If i dispose it in the report printing form and selects only one value, ie the loop executes only once then there isnt any error. But if selects more than one, then i get  error : object not set to an instance of the object.

Show us the code from the form that is printing and the code that is calling it.

Following an 'Objection' by mlmcc (at https://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_27293076.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
