report converted from CR 8.5 to XI used by a VB6 application


We have a VB 6 application using Report converted from CR 8.5 to XI

I have an message error when I call the report.

This existing Report contains 6 sub-reports and each sub-report has his own Data field definiton file (.ttx). Whe I convert the Report, I only open it with CR XI and all the sub-reports and save it.

I have test and having an error (20525) from my VB6 application. (this is the only report than I have problem with, and the only one built with ttx)

We still use the dll of CR 8.5 in VB6 project because all other reports work fine.

There is the VB code to create the CR application, to fill and open the report:

' ***************************************

Private CDOSet As CrystalDataObject.CrystalComObject

Private RepApp As CRPEAuto.Application

Private CrystRep As CRPEAuto.Report

Private RepDb As CRPEAuto.Database

Private RepTables As CRPEAuto.DatabaseTables

Private RepTable As CRPEAuto.DatabaseTable

Private SubReport As CRPEAuto.Report

Private SubReportDb As CRPEAuto.Database

Private SubReportTables As CRPEAuto.DatabaseTables

Private SubReportTable As CRPEAuto.DatabaseTable

'Open the principal report

Set CrystRep = RepApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Rapports\IND.rpt")

Set RepDb = CrystRep.Database

Set RepTables = RepDb.Tables

Set RepTable = RepTables.Item(1)

' ***************************************

the application stop at the opening of the principal report

Can you help me ? For all others CR reports convert to CR XI I have no problem but they are code as the one having problems. Do I have to upgrade the CR component in my VB project and/or update the coding ? If I have to upgrade the CR components tell me wich one I have to add and how I can have it. Other and last thing ... can you tell me wich dll I have to add into the deployment kit I have to convert too ?

P.s.: If someone can reply to me in french it will be appreciate. Other wise, It will be fine in english too ;o)

Thank you,

Understood re version 9 craxdrt.dll. Unfortunately, we can not supply the dll. It was part of Crystal reports 9 developer. That version of Crystal reports has not shipped in... 5 years or so. We do not hand out individual dlls. The only way for you to proceed is to upgrade your version of Crystal Reports to Developer. This will then install craxdrt.dll of version 11.x and you will be able to work with that. Please also consider my otehr post where I recommend that you move to .NET as the craxdrt.dll (RDC) has been retired and you will not be able to upgrade from version XI. As well, support for version XI will also be running out shortly.

But the main point is, we can not supply you with individual DLLs.
