Hi

Are you going to use the bundled Crystal Reports 9 to report off the
Access database or do you plan to open the Access report from within
your C# application?

The first method is easier but requires some coding and is reliable.

The second method requires advanced coding techniques ie. interfacing
with Access... probably COM interop to access the Access application
involved.

My advise is this:

1. Abandon the creation of reports inside the program "Access". Treat
Access as a simple datastore holding data.

2. If you have some funding, perhaps going to Active Reports is a solution.
You can get the code and try it out....... without buying it. You'll just
get a "evaluation" message on generated reports.
3. If you don't want to shell out the money for AR, then check this:
http://www.asp.net/ReportsStarterKit/
out.
or here
http://www.asp.net/DownloadWizard.as...up=StarterKits

(they seemed to have removed the web pages talking about it, though you can
still get the source code)

...

4. If youre using access because its free and what you already have, then
take a look at:

MSDE (sql server 2000 "lite")
http://sholliday.spaces.live.com/?_c...26ayear%3d2005

or SqlExpress ( the same "lite" thing, 2005 style)
