i am developing a project in vb 6 which deals with printing lots of forms and invoices - all containing user-filled details.
The invoices have different structures - some are tabular (with irregularly placed columns, however) while some are plain text (letter-like).
i am going to use MS Access for database.
My confusion is what to use to generate and print these invoices. I have thought of 3 options - crystal reports, Data Report Designer of vb 6 or reports created in MS Access.
I think using crystal reports is too complex to use for my project.
I dont know if data report designer can suffice my requirements.
I dont know how to use MS Access reports in VB 6.0.
Can anyone guide me if i can use data report designer or i need to use access reports. Do check out the invoices i have attached with this post.
If i require to use access reports then how to do it.
Also, how do i print report in VB. I know how to print using Printer object provided by vb 6. But, printing a report-no clue.
Please help me out.
