How to print information from a query using VB Classic and Crystal Reports

HI

I have the following resources:

1. A query from an access 97 database.
2. A report created in crystal reports based on the previous query and database.
3. VB Classic as the language of development.

The idea is create some code that can print that query into the CR Report using a VB Classic DLL from a software that calls it.

Regards.

The first step is to build the report in Crystal using the query or tables as the data source.
Once the report is built you can write an application to display/print/export the report.

What version of Crystal do you have?

The report has been created as you described with crystal reports 9.2
I would like to see an example of how to print a report like this.

Thanks.

Here is very simple code that should work

Dim  crApp As CRAXDRT.Application
Dim  crRpt As CRAXDRT.Report

   Set crApp = New CRAXDRT.Application
   Set crRpt = crApp.OpenReport(ReportPath & "YourReportFile.rpt", 1)
   crRpt.PrintOut
