Using existing Crystal in conversion from VB6 to VS2010 ADO.NET

Last Modified: 2015-09-29
I have a VB6 Application that I am converting to VS2010.  There are about 10 reports that are part of the VB6 app and I want to be able to view them in VS.

If I create a form, add a viewer what code is necessary in the form load to run an existing report without having to rewrite or redesign the report?

In VB6 we added a CRAXdt application then define a report pointer to the location of the crystal report.
The using thew viewer assign the report source, enable refresh and viewed the report.

Also what imports are necessary.. I am attempting this using ADO.net.
