    The printout method takes 5 parameters; promptuser, numberofcopy, collated, startpage, endpage. See if setting all of the parameters helps.

    If not, can you provide the full code as it pertains to Crystal reports?

    • Another thing to check is the arguments you're passing to the SelectPrinter, to ensure that that's correct.

      I usually print out a Windows Printer Test Page from the machine I'd like to print from on the printer I'd like to print on, and read the Printer name, Driver name and Port name from the printout.

    You will get a better answer to your question in the Business Objects SDK Application Development category rather than the Crystal Report Design category.
