Viewing Access Reports in VB

I don't have Crystal Reports, and Data Reports in VB is rubbish. Does anyone know if you can create reports in Access 97 and then call them from VB6? If so how....

RE: Viewing Access Reports in VB

I used this code to open a report from Visual Basic in Access. Hope this helps.

Private Declare Function apiSetForegroundWindow Lib "user32" Alias "SetForegroundWindow" (ByVal hwnd As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function apiShowWindow Lib "user32" Alias "ShowWindow" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal ncmdshow As Long) As Long
Private Const SW_MAXIMIZE = 3

Public Sub CreateReport()
Dim objAccess As New Access.Application

Set objAccess = New Access.Application

With objAccess

.OpenCurrentDatabase ("{path of database}")

.DoCmd.OpenReport rptName, 2

.DoCmd.SelectObject 3, rptName

lngret = apiSetForegroundWindow(.hWndAccessApp)
lngret = apiShowWindow(.hWndAccessApp, SW_MAXIMIZE)
lngret = apiShowWindow(.hWndAccessApp, SW_MAXIMIZE)

End With
End sub
