I use Visual basic 8.0, Cyrstal Reports v10 what is included in Visual basic 8.0 and MYSQL 5.0.
I have installed :mysql-connector-odbc-5.1.5-win32.msi
I have database Articles with two fields:
To connect to my MYSQL database within My form i use this:
Dim Myconn As New MySqlConnection
Dim myCommand As New MySqlCommand
Dim myAdapter As New MySqlDataAdapter
Dim myData As New DataTable
Dim MyConnString As String
MyConnString = "port=3306;SERVER=localhost ;DATABASE=Articles; Uid=test;Pwd=test"
Myconn.ConnectionString = MyConnString
End so on.
The only thing i want to do is connect to MYSQL database to my Cyrstal report. So these two fields can added to my report.
