    creating reports from VB (6)

    I have an access database that I am writing a VB program for. But, how do you produce a report in VB, VB does not seem to offer much in being able to print out the data. Do I have to use another program to print? If so how do you pass paramters etc to the other program.

    thanks

    See Writing Reports with the Microsoft Data Report Designer (Visual Basic 6).

    There are also numerous third-party report generators that work with VB6, such as Crystal Reports (it used to be included on the VB6 CD's)

    I had a quick check of my VS 6.0 Pro CDs, but couldn't locate Crystal Reports. Is it in a particular folder or .CAB? Maybe it's not distributed on all flavours?

    Like a gem Hans! <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17> I should have known by now to search for truncated contractions of "crystal"!
    But I had no idea that this could be run standalone either. Perfect for the "fiddling" I'm having to do at the moment.

    Sal, I don't have VB6 or Crystal Reports, so I cannot create an example.
