You need to provide some markup of your code to review it and let you know where you have made mistake.

can you try exporting to another format? I could be the PDF driver is not working.

It could also be something simple as the last location something was saved is not available and it cannot process the error. IE. a memory stick or network drive thats disconnected.

InfoStore boInfoStore;
EnterpriseService boEnterpriseService;
InfoObjects boInfoObjects;
ReportAppFactory boReportAppFactory;

//Log on to the Enterprise CMS
SessionMgr boSessionMgr = new CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.SessionMgr();
EnterpriseSession boEnterpriseSession = boSessionMgr.Logon(......);

boEnterpriseService = boEnterpriseSession.GetService("", "InfoStore");
boInfoStore = new CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoStore(boEnterpriseService);
string[] reportName = rptName.Split('\\');
string reportNameNoPath = reportName[reportName.Length - 1].Replace(".rpt", "");

string boQuery = "Select SI_ID From CI_INFOOBJECTS Where SI_NAME = '" + reportNameNoPath + "' AND SI_Instance=0";
boInfoObjects = boInfoStore.Query(boQuery);
CrystalDecisions.Enterprise.InfoObject boInfoObject = boInfoObjects[1];

boEnterpriseService = null;

//Retrieve the RASReportFactory
boEnterpriseService = boEnterpriseSession.GetService("RASReportFactory");
boReportAppFactory = (CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ClientDoc.ReportAppFactory)boEnterpriseService.Interface;

//Open the report from Enterprise
ReportClientDocument boReportClientDocument = boReportAppFactory.OpenDocument(boInfoObject.ID, 0);
DatabaseController reportdatabaseController = boReportClientDocument.DatabaseController;
PrintOutputController reportPrintController = boReportClientDocument.PrintOutputController;

Report entity = new Report();
DataSet source = (DataSet)entity.GetListSourceFromCustomFunction(customFunction, argsListSource);

CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.DataDefModel.ISCRDataSet crDataset;
crDataset = CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.DataSetConversion.DataSetConverter.Convert(source);

reportdatabaseController.SetDataSource(crDataset);

CrReportExportFormatEnum rasReportExportFormat = CrReportExportFormatEnum.crReportExportFormatPDF;
CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.CommonObjectModel.ByteArray tempByteArray = reportPrintController.Export(rasReportExportFormat, 0);

Open in new window

It breaks on the export method. I will try another format.
thanks

Are you trying to use the BOE assemblies on a Crystal Report?

Have you tried using the CR2008 SDK and assemblies?

I guess I am getting a little confused about all of the different versions. I have added all of the dll's from the "businessobjects\common\4.0\managed" directory.

All of the versions are 12.0.1100.0 in the visual studio properties window.

I still get the same error,  but when I added a blank report with no data it worked. Is there any trick to push the data into the report?

thanks

Not really.  

There are 2 methods of providing data to a report, push and pull.

Pull is what you are using, the report is tied to a database and controls the access.  Push uses a recordset from the application and your application controls access to the database.

Many find the push method easier especially when building the application on your machine then running on a different system.

Actually I am using the push method. I am using the .SetDataSource() method and passing in a dataset.

Finally got it to work. Apparently when you use 'ReportClientDocument' the table in the dataset has to have the same name as the table/command in the report.

The table in the report was not being set because the name didn't match
