How can I open a SalesLogix Crystal Report that was generated by Knowledge?


I have a report which takes ages to run
I therefore can’t open it via the application.basicfunctions.doinvoke … routine as this always refreshes the data, even if the “save data with report” option is ticked

I have the report running overnight via Knowledgesync and saving to a path on the server
I want to click a button in slx and open this file – with the data saved

I have the following code:

dim objrdc, crxreport, crxview, rptwindow
Set objRDC = CreateObject(“Crystalruntime.Application”)
Set CRXReport = objRDC.OpenReport(“filename.rpt”)

What is the next command to open the report in Crystal Report Viewer?
If I put
it tries to print to a printer – I don’t want this but at least I know the text above is ok

I’ve tried
and this errors


Since you are already using KnowledgeSync to run the report, why don’t you output it to PDF and then just have the users open it as a PDF file rather than Crystal?

You may lose some of the Interactive features from Crystal, but since the report takes such a long time to run, it is very likely that your users can’t use those features either.

So, have the Report be exported to PDF and then pasted it on a Folder all users can have access to. (e.g. SLX Library).
