To export a Crystal Report to PDF.
You can find some information, here.

To send an Email, try this:

Dim mail As New MailMessage()
mail.To = "me@mycompany.com"
mail.From = "you@yourcompany.com"
mail.Subject = "this is a test email."
mail.Body = "this is my test email body."
Dim attachment As New MailAttachment(Server.MapPath("test.pdf")) 'create the attachment
mail.Attachments.Add(attachment) 'add the attachment
SmtpMail.SmtpServer = "localhost" 'your real server goes here

thank you sir,
one more question
is it possible to directly send the generated pdf file to specific email id?????

if possible this will be large milestone for me....

Thnx in advance


I think yoou can only send the generated file as attachment, but you can always write code that you can't change the specific Email ID.
See previous post how to send an Email.


No problem :)
