Passing a Title to Crystal Reports

Passing a Title to Crystal Reports

Passing a Title to Crystal Reports

Does anyone know how to dynamically pass a Title to Crystal Reports (ver. 6)? The Help in Crystal Reports is rather pathetic.

RE: Passing a Title to Crystal Reports


It took me forever and several user groups to figure it out. Unfortunatly, I've yet to try it. What was suggested to me was:

CrystalReport1.Formulas(0) = "Headline=""your_data""

then in the Crystal Report, make a formula called "HeadLine" and you can place the formula field wherever you like.

Again, I've yet to try it.

RE: Passing a Title to Crystal Reports

I tried that method with the Formulas. Maybe I was doing it wrong, but it didn't work. Experimenting some more, I found a way to do it. It assumes your CrystalReport1 designer was renamed "PeopleDetail" and that you had already created a SQL statement to select your records for the report stored in ReportSQL, and user supplied title for the report in ReportTitle$:

Dim Report As New PeopleDetail

Option Explicit
Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset

If Len(ReportSQL$) = 0 Then
MsgBox "Recordset not selected yet. Use the Query form first"
Unload Me
End If

'Use this SQL statement to select the records to use
rs.Open ReportSQL$, _
"DSN=" & DSN$ & ";", adOpenKeyset
Report.Database.SetDataSource rs

If Len(ReportTitle$) = 0 Then
Report.ReportTitle = "Detailed Personal Report"
Report.ReportTitle = ReportTitle$
ReportTitle$ = ""
End If

'CRViewer1.Name = "Test Name"
CRViewer1.DisplayGroupTree = False
CRViewer1.ReportSource = Report

End Sub
