I have asked this question before and still do not have a satisfactory answer.
I have created a Crystal Report using CR 2011. This report has a stored procedure as a data source. In CR IDE runs great. In a VB6 App it runs perfectly. I am converting to VS2010. I have a form, with a report viewer on it. Is there a way to assign user and password and set report viewer options and simply refresh the report allowing the user to enter parameters etc. I have several of these systems that need to be converted, and the data entry and update is tedious(35 year old code techniques), but from what I seem to find on the web is a horrible convoluted process to recreate these reports inside of VS2010? The reports run, most are fairly complex, and rewriting is going to be a prohibitive cost to the company.
I have attached a sample of the method used in VB6, and need to know if there is a similar option in vb2010, if not VS2010 is of no use to me. We have 11 years invested in these applications and entry/update rewrite is acceptable, sort of, but having to rewrite 75 to 80 crystal reports is not.
