advantages and disadvantages of using crystal report with power builder

Hello All,

We are planning to integrate Crystal Report with Power Builder.

Please help us to identify pros and cons of using Crystal Report with Power Builder.

We are using Power Builder 11.5. Please let me know which version of Crystal Report is compatible with it?

Is there any compatibility issue of Crystal report with Power Builder?

Thanks,

    Hello,

    we had already tested CrystalReports together with PowerBuilder (approx. 1 year ago). We integrated CrystalReports in our PowerBuilder 11.5 Classic application. We had no technical problems to integrate in CrystalReport. But due to other reasons, we made the decision to use another reporting tool.

    Best regards

    Heiko

    Hello,

         we use Powerbuilder with Crystal report from 1998 with success. Actually we use PB 11.5 classic and integrate Crystal report XI R2 using COM technology. This tecnhology was dismissed from Business Object and SAP in favour of .NET and java. So if you want to use latest versions of Crystal report you have to write code in Powerbuilder .NET and than integrate in PB classic as a COM.

    I haven't try but you can find examples using Google search.

    Bye

    Hi

    have you checked out Reporting Studio? We're considering using it but are still in the evaluation phase.
