Re: Crystal Report

Hello CPA,
The communications protocol may not be correct between VB6 and printer. Look in the Add-in Manager for the proper printer lib. Crystal is hard to work with from VB6. I know this is not much, but have you tried using the application wizard? Also there is a lot of information on MSN @ microsoft.

How to print database in vb

To Print a Database you would require to create a Report. There were many ways of creating reports in Visual Basic 6.0. Hereby I am giving you an example of Data Report.
Printing a Data Report
Printing a data report can be accomplished in one of two ways. The user can click the Print button that appears on the data report in Print Preview mode (using the Show method), or you can programmatically enable printing using the PrintReport method. If an error occurs during printing, trap it in the Error event.
Choosing to Display a Print Dialog Box
When printing a report programmatically, you have two choices: to print by displaying the Print dialog box, or by printing without displaying the dialog box.
To display the Print dialog box
  1. Add a CommandButton to a Form.
  2. In the button's Click event, place the following code.
DataReport1.PrintReport True The Print dialog box allows the user to select a printer, print to file, select a range of pages to print, and specify the number of copies to print.
Note Printers must be installed on the computer in order to present a choice of printers.

Printing Without a Dialog Box
In some cases, you may wish to print the report without user intervention. The PrintReport method also gives you the option of selecting a range of pages to print, either all, or a specified range.
To print without displaying the dialog box
  1. Add a CommandButton to a Form.
  2. In the button's Click event, place the following code:
DataReport1.PrintReport False
Or, to specify a range of pages to print, use the code below:
DataReport1.PrintReport False, rptRangeFromTo, 1, 2

How to creat a report with java? i need Java Enterprises latest tool. how download? how to creat a exe file from java?

If you would like to create a report with java there are a couple of things that you could focus on using. You could either go for Crystal Reports, or even Jasper Reports or any other reporting kit for java. To download the Java Enterprises latest tool.. I need clarification with this one. Do you mean J2EE SDKs? if you do just go to the sun microsystems website and download it from there. To create an exe file... jars are normally the ones you get when you compile java codes. The best thing to do here is to create batch files to run your compiled java applications.
