Printing Crystal Reports

Printing reports in Landscape using Crystal 8.5 Active X by BigKahunna
Posted: 27 Jan 04

Problems printing reports in landscape using the crystal 8.5 active x control?

Design the report in Landscape mode as normal.

Rather than using the PrinterSelect method of the crystal control do the following.

Use the microsoft common dialog printer control.

Before showing it set the orientation method to cdlLandscape

I have found this to be the best method of ensuring the report always defaults to landscape format with the minimum of user intervention.

Hope this helps someone as it's bugged me for ages!
