assistance converting crystalreports 2011 reports

Last Modified: 2015-11-12
i am desperate to find someone who can explain how to uses existing reports (all called from vb6 with ease) to be called from vb.net

I have asked several questions ans so far none of the answers have worked.  i seem to get the feeling that these reports will have to be called in a totally different method, most answers seem to advocate using .xsd files with a push method.

1. Does this mean all reports have to be re-written, or can a datasource change handle the issue.

2. Reports will run as they exist, but there doesn't seem to be a way to pass sql login info. All reports require user to login to the database.

I have read so much online but 95% is how to create reports, and very little on using existing reports.

Is there anyone that can help me with this,  8-10 lines of code in VB6 seems to be 60 plus in VB.NET.
