Export crystal report to pdf


I want to export my crystal report to pdf and send a mail programically. Crystal report has 4 parameters and how can i pass these parameters in code...

My code is as follows...

Dim crParameterFieldDefinitions As ParameterFieldDefinitions

Dim crParameterFieldDefinition As ParameterFieldDefinition

Dim crParameterValues As New ParameterValues

Dim crParameterDiscreteValue As New ParameterDiscreteValue

Dim crParamenter_array As New ParamArrayAttribute

Dim cryRpt As New ReportDocument

Dim DefaultPrinterName As String

Dim oPS As New System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings

Dim sFilePath As String

Dim sPath As String

Dim sFileLoc As String

Dim sFileName As String


sPath = Path.GetTempPath()

DefaultPrinterName = oPS.PrinterName

sFilePath = GetCrystalReport(_REPRT_CODE)

sFileLoc = sPath + "Reports\" + _REPRT_CODE + ".rpt"

If sFilePath = String.Empty OrElse sFilePath = Nothing Then

TNotification.StatusBarError("File Not Found.")

Return False



End If

If Not SetDbLogonInfo(cryRpt) Then

TNotification.StatusBarError("Database Login Failed.")

Return False


crParameterDiscreteValue.Value = _empid

crParameterDiscreteValue.Value = _month

crParameterDiscreteValue.Value = _parea

crParameterDiscreteValue.Value = _year

crParameterFieldDefinitions = cryRpt.DataDefinition.ParameterFields

crParameterFieldDefinition = crParameterFieldDefinitions.Item("empid")

crParameterFieldDefinition = crParameterFieldDefinitions.Item("month")

crParameterFieldDefinition = crParameterFieldDefinitions.Item("parea")

crParameterFieldDefinition = crParameterFieldDefinitions.Item("year")

crParameterValues = crParameterFieldDefinition.CurrentValues

' crParameterValues.Clear()



cryRpt.PrintOptions.PrinterName = DefaultPrinterName

Dim rep As CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.FieldObject = Nothing

'sending report to the printer

'cryRpt.PrintToPrinter(_noOfCpys, False, 1, 100)

Dim CrExportOptions As ExportOptions

Dim CrDiskFileDestinationOptions As New _


Dim CrFormatTypeOptions As New PdfRtfWordFormatOptions()

' CrDiskFileDestinationOptions.DiskFileName = "c:\" + _rptCode + "_" + _docEntry + ".pdf"

'sFileName = "\\B1devsrv\b1_shr\Attachments\" + _rptCode + "_" + _docEntry.ToString + ".pdf"

sFileName = TSQL.GetSingleRecord("Select AttachPath from OADP").ToString.Trim + _empid + "_payslip.pdf"

CrDiskFileDestinationOptions.DiskFileName = sFileName

CrExportOptions = cryRpt.ExportOptions

With CrExportOptions

.ExportDestinationType = ExportDestinationType.DiskFile

.ExportFormatType = ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat

.DestinationOptions = CrDiskFileDestinationOptions

.FormatOptions = CrFormatTypeOptions

End With


If SendMail(_empid.ToString, sFileName) Then

TNotification.MessageBox("Email Sent")

End If

If File.Exists(sFileLoc) Then

' File.Delete(strFileLoc)

End If

End If

Return True

Catch ex As Exception

Throw ex

End Try

I got invalid index as error

    Below is an example of setting the parameter name dockey@ in crystal report.

    Just repeat this block of code for each of your parameter.

    If Not CRRpt.ParameterFields("dockey@") Is Nothing Then    CRRpt.ParameterFields("dockey@").CurrentValues.Clear()    Dim ParamValue As New CrystalDecisions.Shared.ParameterDiscreteValue()    ParamValue.Value = DocEntry    CRRpt.ParameterFields("dockey@").CurrentValues.Add(ParamValue)End If

    Do note that the ParamValue.Value accepts an object type variable.

    You have to supply the correct type for each of your CR params.
