Export to Text VB.NET 2005

Post Author: hobbit666

CA Forum: .NET

I'm trying to write a program that will display a report using the reportviewer so the operator can check the contents (until i write so checking my self) they will then click a button that will export the report to a text file.

I'm using Crystal Report Pro XI now to develope reports and stuff and can export the file from within crystal fine.

Now i'm trying to write a VB.NET windows application that will load and export the file automatically (as not all machines have crystal reports full product) but when i add the crystal report viewer into my application and get the report to load i try clicking on the export button but text is not and option.

Why?

Is there a way of getting a windows application to exort a report into a text file (the generated file has to be text as it's an order to be sent to our suppliers)

    The version of Crystal Reports that comes with Visual Studio .NET 2005 does not allow you to export to Text format. In order to upgrade to XI R2 you must own a copy of the Developer edition of Crystal Reports XI R2. From your post above you seem to have the Professional edition.You won't see the additional formats until you install Developer edition.

    Export to txt is available in CR XI R2, but I do not think it is available in VS.NET 2005.

    I do have Crystal Reports XI R2 installed but still nothing.

    I've even formatted my machine and installed in this order:-

    Windows, Drivers, Visual Studio 2005 Pro, MS SQL 2005 Dev, Crystal Reports XI R2

    But i still can't seem to get the extra export options.
