CRViewer in MS Access VBA does not work

CRViewer in MS Access VBA does not work

CRViewer in MS Access VBA does not work


I am trying to use the CRViewer control in MS Access VBA, but something is not working.  When I insert the CR Viewer Control onto a form in Access, it appears as just a square, not the usual control.  When I try to set custom properties, I get the error, "The operation on the Crystal Report Viewer Control object failed.  The OLE Server may not be registered.  To register the OLE Server, reinstall it."

     The weird thing is that the control works fine in all of my other Office Apps and VB.  I tried re-installing CR, registering the dll with regsvr32, but neither of these made a difference.  I'm stumped.  Any ideas?

  Thanks for help,

   Nathan Schultz

   Forgot to mention I'm using CR8 Developer Edition with MS Access 2000 SR-1.


RE: CRViewer in MS Access VBA does not work


I am getting this same error in Access97 with CR8 - have you resolved it?
