if u mean displaying a report on vb this is how u go about it.
Place The crystal report control on the form,
connect it to the report file name

Dim Var as CrystalReport
set Var = CrystalReport1 'setting the variable to the name of the crystal report control
Var.WindowState = crptMaximized 'Maximizing the report to full screen
Var.Action = 1 'displaying the report

first put a Crystal Report control on your form...then
copy the code to your button click event.

CR1.DiscardSavedData = True
CR1.WindowState = crptMaximized
CR1.ReportFileName = crystal_report_file

note: CR1 - is the control name for the Crystal Report control i have used.

hope this will help you...good luck.
