Matching config file Crystal Reports 8

Post Author: BBUSA

CA Forum: General

I am a novice user with Crystal Reports 8. I have been using it to modify existing reports. Now I would like to write new reports. When I try to link the new report to my application software it does not show up as an option that I can choose. The reason for this is that there is a little config file that needs to be written for each report. All the reports that I have from before have a matching config file. I can open the file in notepad but when I save it, it is no longer a config format, it becomes a text file. So my question is how do I write the correct config file from scratch. Thank you all for you cyber help.

    Open notepad and type in your commands and then do a SAVE AS. For SAVE AS TYPE choose ALL FILES then for your file name type test.ini or test.cfg or whatever the extension is for the config files for the other reports. That should work.
