Trouble Displaying Crystal Rpt In VB6

Trouble Displaying Crystal Rpt In VB6

Trouble Displaying Crystal Rpt In VB6

I am generating a Crystal Report from data out of a True DBgrid 6.0 Pro (OLEDB) in VB6.  The program sends the report to a preview window for viewing.  It was working, but now displays a blank page and continues to clock, but doesn't fill the page with any data.  Eventually, I have to kill the program.  I am clueless.  I am using Crystal Version 8.5 on an XP machine.  Could I have a missing dll?

RE: Trouble Displaying Crystal Rpt In VB6

If it was working, and now it's stopped, then presumably your code is fine, I'd check the permissions on the database for the user, or perhaps there's something amiss in the record selection.


RE: Trouble Displaying Crystal Rpt In VB6

It is not even working for me in the .vbp where it always worked.  It is as if something changed when I created the executable.  The data diplays in the True DBgrid, it is just not going to the preview.  It immediately diplays a blank page on my print click event, but it never fills it in with data.

RE: Trouble Displaying Crystal Rpt In VB6

OK, so there has been a change, you createdd an .exe

Did you then run the .exe on the dev machine?

Do you have Crystal Reports itself?

Try opening it from within there and refeshing.


RE: Trouble Displaying Crystal Rpt In VB6

Yes, I ran the executable on the dev machine.  Since the report is created during runtime from the data in the tdbgrid, I can't run it from Crystal and refresh.
