Hi Experts-

I am wondering if this is possible?

I create a CR and export it to PDF using the below code.
After execution, can I retrieve a sum Variable from my Crystal report and send it back to a variable in WFC ?

 CrExportOptions = report.ExportOptions
                With CrExportOptions
                    .ExportDestinationType = ExportDestinationType.DiskFile
                    .ExportFormatType = ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat
                    .DestinationOptions = CrDiskFileDestinationOptions
                    .FormatOptions = CrFormatTypeOptions
                End With
                report.Export()

I don't believe the .Net versions allow that.

If they do I don't know what the method is.

Everything is passing parameters to crystal, not crystal to .net

Understood.  Crystal has full versions and versions built for use with Visual Studio.  The VS versions are referred to as .Net versions.

The full versions used to provide access to report objects though I don't know if you could get formula values.  The .Net versions were more limited and I don't believe they provide access to what you want.

That was too easy....Ran a Query that summed up the total field prior to executing the CR, and voila, now I have the amount in a variable...

Good workaround.

So long as the filtering is the same the value should be correct
