Crystal Reports Tutorial Update


Recently I receive a comment on the database path error. This error occurs because the database location is not relative to the application path. In our example on How to Print Using Crystal Reports the base path for the application is located under the debug folder.

For the sake of this tutorial I move the database within the data folder relative to the debug folder to avoid any error.

In addition the following code has been added to call the database path.

Dim tbCurrent As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Table Dim tliCurrent As CrystalDecisions.Shared.TableLogOnInfo For Each tbCurrent In mReport.Database.Tables tliCurrent = tbCurrent.LogOnInfo With tliCurrent.ConnectionInfo .ServerName = Application.StartupPath & "\Data\Data.mdb" .UserID = "" .Password = "" .DatabaseName = Application.StartupPath & "\Data\Data.mdb" End With tbCurrent.ApplyLogOnInfo(tliCurrent) Next tbCurrent

Due to hectic schedule I cannot answer all questions which require too much time to debug and or modify the program.

You just need VB 2008 professional or team edition. This will not run on VB 2008 Express Edition.

I have an existing simple DSR Data Report in VB 6.0 created using MS Access DataBase (NorthWind) using Data Environment. I am creating a new Crystal report in VS 2008 (.net 3.5) and use the option creating from Existing report and map it to the .dsr (data report in VB 6.0) report. But when i do that i get an error logged as "Could not access the database from the Data Environment. Check your Data Environment." Also if i try to create a Simple Data Report (.dsr) in VB 6.0 without using Data Environment by creating a user control and keep the recordset there and add that recordset as data source to the Data Reoprt. Now when i try to create a crystal report in .net 3.5 using the option from the 'Existing Report' and then select the .dsr report in vb 6.0 then also i get the erro as - 'Missing DataEnvironment DSR File c:\program files\microsoft visual studio\vb98\data report\Form1.ReportDS.dsr.'
