I was a long time since my last post, that was due to my engagement in managing 3 concurrent projects in two different countries, now I am back with this interesting article.
Allot of GP developers used to ask how to run Crystal Report from GP, all the answers were to use Report Designer Component (RDC) for dexterity along with ReportView.exe and proceed, this is not an easy task to be done if you are not dexterity expert.
In this article I have created a .Net based application that view any crystal report using parameters passed through files.
Now to implement this solution you will need to follow steps below:
1. Download and unzip "Crystal Reports Viewer.zip" from the link below:
2. Run "GP Crystal Reports Viewer Setup\setup.exe" to start the installation.
Note: Crystal Report Runtime files and .Net framework should be installed on the client machine, if it's not then you might need to read files under "CrystalReports" and "dotnetfx" folders.
3. Import "CustomerCard.Package" from Dynamics GP Menu >> Tools >> Customize >> Customization Maintenance.
4. Modify the VBA code to fit your needs.
Please don't hesitate to post your comments.
