VB6 Code to change the Datasource

VB6 Code to change the Datasource

VB6 Code to change the Datasource

environment, VB6, sp5, Crystal reports 7, sql7, windows 98.

hired in to put together reporting package that the existing sql apps dont have.

Having to manipulate the data extensively so i have a vb6 shell, uses sql to pull teh data, i manipultae it and pop out a comma delimited txt file. I built a corresponding ttx file to describe the data attributes, all of that has gone well.

Now the question, how do i tell teh report that i built to use the txt file?

the idea was to extract the data, build the text file on the client side, pop the client into teh appropriate report for the generated text file and after the client is done throw away the text file.

any and all help is sincerely appreciated.
