Link access reports with vb.net app

P: n/a
Is there any way to show an existing access database (.mdb) report inside a
vb.net application?

Any/all pointers much appreciated.

You can invoke an Access report using Automation.
You can convert (or redesign) a report to a Reporting Services report,
and that one can be shown in its own control on your form.

Any/all pointers to either approach (Automation, Reporting Services) - much
appreciated. I'll google as well.

Thanks so much.
