Crystal print to multiple printers
Posted 04 May 2004 - 05:10 AM
I would like to know if it is possible to print a crystal report to multiple printers at onetime without using a third-party software? Or if a third party software is indeed needed, what is the cheapest in the market that can handle this task?

Thanks for your kind reply. Actually, I'm not calling crystal in proiv. I elminated the previous query of printing the output to multiple printers by exporting it to a pdf file and save it to a public folder.
But when I tried to do the export to pdf in crystal, I got a print engine error: Error in File E:\crystal\report\test.rpt: Error detected by export DLL:
Do you have an idea of what's causing this?
Thanks in advance,

In response to the question about calling Crystal reports using the Link-Client command, we wrote our own DLL program to interface between PRO-IV and the Crystal reports print engine. However, now Crystal offers and OCX control, and this might work well with PRO-IV. (We haven't tried it.)
BTW, Crystal will only work with PRO-IV if your data is stored in a SQL database or some other ODBC-compatible database.

I wrote a DLL using MS Studio VC++ and tried to call that from PRO-IV 5.5 using the LINK-CLIENT command. That did not work giving an error that the external subroutine could not be found. I then wrote a VB DLL and that gave the same problem. Then I took the sampdll.c code that comes with the PRO-IV distribution and compiled that with the given make file. This sort of worked when I placed the DLL in the system32 directory - it displayed the message box and then was hanging. As of now, I am unable to pinpoint what I need to do to write a callable DLL from PRO-IV and where to place it. I am sure it is my ignorance but reading the documentation from PRO-IV did not help me.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
