Hi Priya,

I'm also having a simlar problem - using RDC in VB6 with CR8.5 was a breeze - but not so in CR11 - I simply can't get any Designers for CR11 in the VB6 environment..I wonder how it is possible...?

I've read the Technical PDF that comes with CR11 but that too goes on saying all is possible using RDC and CR11 etc etc - but exactly how..I'm baffled - did you manage to get it done ? Please let me know how. Will aprreciate your help verty much :)

Thanks.

Sailesh.

Hi Rajesh,

Yes, I finally got the solution - actually during installation of CR11, I was using a registraion Key that was only for CR11 and not for Developer. After unistalling entrire CR11 and re-installong agagin (with Developer Key), well....things couldn't be better. Simply start VB6 IDE and things behave just as they were in the CR8.5 days.

Hi,

Sailesh thanks for replying. That is one of the specific reason.

And these for Priya also..........

In CR XI you have Developer version only will allow you to deploy with VB.

And in VB you have to follow these steps to run CRXI reports in VB

1. In VB project properties go to Designer tab and select Crystal Reports 11 and in Controls tab select Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Liberary 11.0

2. You will get one more tool box in tools window called Crystal Reports


3. and write the code like this in the form load (or which event you want)
Dim Report as New CrystalReport1

CrystalActiveXReportViewer.ReportSource = Report.Application.OpenReport( Give Report Path )

CrystalActiveXReportViewer.ViewReport

4. Run the Application.

Let me know if any queries.........................:cool:

If you haven't gotten past this issue, I can sympathize with you. It took me many hours as well. The answer is actually in BizObjects Knowledgebase, but it isn't so obvious what to look for. Query their KB for "OCX RDC" and find the technical paper "Migrating from the OCX Control to the Crystal Reports 9 Report Designer Component (RDC)". The RDC is essentially unchanged from versions 9 thru version 11, which is what throws many off. Get the document and read around page 17 for sample code. I have all my reports pointing to a named data source or DSN. Your VB program must also step through and assign the DSN to each table in the report. See sample code on page 44 of the document.

While I haven't yet read through the PDF to confirm that it solves my problems (same as those written above), I just want to give a big thanks to Henry and give the URL for this PDF:
http://support.businessobjects.com/communityCS/TechnicalPapers/cr9_ocx_to_rdc.pdf
As mentioned, to reach it via searching BusinessObjects website, search on "OCX RDC" in quotes.

If you have any more grief with it, make a post. I can post code samples if need be.
Once you look at the code needed, a lot of things make sense, but it's all in that one document anyway.

Hi all,

Just a quick question - crystal report professional cann't be called from VB ?

No one said you can't call Crystal from VB, there is just a lot of confusion on how exactly to call CRv11 from VB6.

I don't know what you question is regarding "keys". Elaborate if you have a question.

I have "professional" edition ? and i read on vendor site that only developer edition can do application integration...does it make any sense ?

when i said about keys - it means developer key or general key - a reply mentioned in the Sailesh's reply...
