Is it possible to get Crystal Reports to print multiple reports in ASP.NET?

Rod
We've got an old VB6 application which has 9 Crystal Reports it can print.
These 9 reports are considered by our users to be in essence one "report",
in the sense that they are all related and they cannot make their business
plans without all 9 reports. However, they really are 9 separate reports, 7
of which have sub-reports in them.

One of my colleagues has been working on converting them from the VB6 app,
to .RPT files which can be invoked from ASP.NET pages. This was
demonstrated to a large group of our users last week. They were very
excited and instantly saw the advantage (since most of these users are
remote users, being able to access these reports off-site has become a huge
issue with us). However, the very first question they had was, "can it
print the whole thing at once?" They are used to the VB6 application
invoking all 9 reports and printing them out, one at a time, in a way which
seemed to the user to be just one report.

To the best of my knowledge of both Crystal and ASP.NET, it is not possible
to print 9 different Crystal Reports on an ASP.NET page, as if it was just
one report. You can't simply "click one button" and all 9 comes out.

Am I wrong about this? Is it possible, in ASP.NET, to print 9 separate
Crystal Reports with just one click of a button? And if it is, how is it
done?

I beleive you can use 9 different Crystal Report viewer controls on
the same page

the problem becomes whether or not the number of pages in your reports
are dynamic, as they may overlap each other. The crystal report viewer
will display the report as html on the page inside the viewer control.

So start with that. now another thing to note is that all crystal
reports can be exported as PDF, Excel Etc, (we use pdf) as then they
can email them rather then print them save them do what they want with
them etc.)

Now there are third party controls you can use to stitch the seperate
PDF reports into one and return just one PDf with all 9 Reports in it

Thank you, very much! This looks like it will work just fine.

I'm supposed to be printing them from a VB.Net 2003 application and I will be passing 2 parameters (start and end dates). These reports are huge (over 1000+ pages each). My original...

Hello, I am developing a VB.NET 2003 application that will use lots of Crystal Reports. Sometimes the users will preview a report in a Crystal report viewer, and sometimes they will send the report directly to the printer bypassing the Crystal report viewer altogether. When sending the job directly to the printer I use the PrintToPrinter command CR.PrintToPrinter(1, False, 0, 0)
