I'm running Windows 10 with Office 365 and Crystal Reports 2016. I already have the report set up in Crystal, but I do not understand how to show it in my Access program. I added a reference to Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Library 14.0 and added the control to my form. However, the old CRXDRT object is no longer available. Or at least, I cannot find it. So how do I display my report? Thanks!

Hi Teresa,

We no longer ship an ActiveX report Designer that can plug into Access.

Options are to create a viewer that can plug into Access using CR for VS:

or a link to Crystal Reports Viewer where you can upload reports with saved data and preview them.
