Crystal Report from VB not refreshing

Crystal Report from VB not refreshing

Crystal Report from VB not refreshing

I have a crystal report designer inside a visual basic program.  When I add new records inside the vb program, the report does not find the new data.  I do not save the data with the crystal report so I know that's not the problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

The following is the code I use to send the report to the printer:

Private Sub PrintRequest()
   Dim Report As New CrystalReport1

   Dim crpParamDefs As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinitions
   Dim crpParamDef As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinition
   Dim crpSubreport As CRAXDRT.Report
   Dim crxTable As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable
   Dim crxTables As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTables

   Screen.MousePointer = vbArrowHourglass

   Set crxTables = Report.Database.Tables
   Set crxTable = crxTables.Item(1)
   crxTable.SetLogOnInfo "BTSQL02", "Freight", "REPORT", "REPORT"

   Set crpParamDefs = Report.ParameterFields

   For Each crpParamDef In crpParamDefs
      With crpParamDef
         Select Case .ParameterFieldName
           Case "NameParm"
              .SetCurrentValue txtEmp.Text
           End Select
       End With
   Report.EnableParameterPrompting = False

   Report.SelectPrinter PrintData.DriverName, PrintData.DeviceName, PrintData.Port

   'set page orientation MUST be after report.selectprinter
   Report.PaperOrientation = crPortrait

   Report.PrintOut (False) 'don't prompt user
   Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault

   Report.VerifyOnEveryPrint = True    'not sure
   Set crxTables = Nothing             'if these
   Set crxTable = Nothing              'lines are
   Set crpParamDefs = Nothing          'even needed
End Sub

RE: Crystal Report from VB not refreshing

Here is a test.

If you add the records, close the app, reopen the app and run the report, does it find the records added before the close?
