Hi,
I was wondering if someone is able to help. I need to be able to create a PrintDocument object from a generated crystal report within vb.net. I have previously used the following for printing a document (please see attached code). The requirement has now changed to the user now needing a .PDF copy. I am using novaPdf which I am able to call but I need to pass through a PrintDocument object in order to get it to work.

Regards,

Ross

Dim objReport As clsReport
        Dim objFrmReport As New frmreport
        Dim objUD17 As clsUD17
        Dim myReport As PackSlip

        objOrder = New clsOrder ' Created for the connection
        objUD17 = New clsUD17(dtBatch, objOrder.getConnection) ' pass the connection
        '  objUD17.CheckBatch() ' Check the batch

        myReport = New PackSlip()
        objReport = New clsReport(dtBatch)
        objReport.ExtractReport()
        myReport.PrintOptions.PrinterName = "HP LaserJet 1100 (MS)"

        myReport.PrintToPrinter(1, True, 1, 0)


        'objFrmReport.Show()
        ' dtBatch = objUD17.getDt ' return the datatable as this could have items that have been removed due to them being scanned.

        'objUD17.CheckBatch() ' Check the batch
        objUD17.createNewBatch() 'Create the new batch


        objReport = Nothing
        objFrmReport = Nothing
        objOrder = Nothing
        MsgBox("Complete")

Why not use the Crystal export to PDF capability?
