I am using vb 2010 forms application and Crystal Reports, all is going well, reports look really well, however I now need to print a lease (12) pages.
Sporadically throughout the report I have to fill in some data.
How does 1 go about setting up and printing a 12 page report like that?
Surely I don't have to create a new report for each page then drop them on the main report as sub-reports...yikes I hope there is a better way.
Don't understand the problem, Crystal doesn't care if the report is 1 page or 1,000 pages. I think you need to explain this,

The better you explain the problem the more likely someone can help.
I have very limited experience with CR, I have a 12 page document that I have to recreate, for instance page1 has data, page 2 just has text and no data, page 3 has data, etc.
I tinkered with it for a bit and didnt understand how to add pages to the report.
It sound like you need to create a Word document and merge data into it. This can be done in .Net but I don't know exactly how. I would post this question in either the .Net Forum or the Office Development Forum.
I used a word document template in my access 2007 application, it worked like a champ until the first user that used it didn't have office installed.
I couldn't find a runtime for word or another way to make it work so I abandoned the idea.
I read a forum somewhere (cant find it anymore) that said I should use 11 sub reports and 1 main report, that seems like it would get ugly real fast, having to include those 12 extra reports in my project.
