Integrating CR from other versions into VS2003 ASP.NET application

P: n/a
My customer has many CR created using other CR versions than the one in VS2003.

I have been trying to do it, but keep getting errors. It seems I can't
override the report settings like reportsource, and others.

Is there a way to integrate those reports in a ASP.NET application without
recreating them?

Thank you,

Hello Carlos,

As I understand all you reports are integrated into your VS App?
Consider moving all reports to the single server app - see "Server Merge
Module" in CR documentation.
It will be more easy way to maintain all versions together

Hello Michael,

I thought the merge modules are intended for deploying. I am not there yet.
I am still building the app.

I put the reports in the VS a a web project, but can't integrate them into
the application. ie. Created a web form, added a web viewer, on the load
event I added the respective code:
1) Created the report object,
2) Created the dataset,
3) set the report.datasource = dataset
4) Assgiend the report to the web viewer as webviewer.reportsource = report

It seems the report.datasource overriding did nothing as it gives me a logon
error. The report is still looking for the data using the server/credentials
when created.

I also have other reports VS can not open. So, can they be integrated?

Any thoughts?

Thank you,

Carlos

Hello Carlos,

Ahh, it's eternal problem with CR :) You need apply all SPs, patch and hotfixes
from the crystal website to start you report working as descibed
