Renaming Or Overwriting A File. www.xtremevbtalk.com

I have created a program which accepts a string of data from a remote system through MSComm and writes the string to a file. Periodicaly I want to create a report and then have the program do one of the following to the file.1. Rename the file.2. Delete the file.3. Clear out the contents of the file so I can write fresh data to the file.The Idea is to create the Report and then get rid of the old info so any new info will be written to a new or empty file. This way I don't have to read through a lot of old info looking for the new when I create the next report.Ideally I would like to have the program rename the file so I can keep it as a backup. I can create the report but how do I rename or delete the file?thanx

Report Building www.xtremevbtalk.com

Guys,I am trying to build a report programatically in Access 97 and have succeded in doing so. However, when compiling the database and creating an MDE file, Access does not allow the program to create the report, since reports cannot be edited in an MDE file.I have proceeded to try and reference an external MDB and creating the report in that database, but Access informed me that an MDE file cannot reference an MDB file.Would anyone be able to assist me in creating this report? It has to be made from scratch as it is generic.ThanksAdi

VB2010 Crystal Report Login Details Required? www.dreamincode.net

I am trying to grasp how to include a Crystal report in a program written in Visual Studio 2010.I have created a form in the program and included a Crystal Report Viewer on it. When I create a new Crystal report using the report wizard all seems well. However, when I debug/run the program I am asked to provide the database login ID and password. The database I am using was created with SQL Server 2008 R2, and was never created with login credentials. I believe the problem is in the Crystal Report Viewer opening the report but have no clue about what steps to take to correct this. When I run the program with the Report Viewer minus a Report, the Report viewer runs successfully. But when I include a report it asks for the login ID and password.

VS 2010 How To Retrieve That A Button Is Pressed In A Existing Program www.vbforums.com

i have a program called Vip Task Manager.This program lets me set up task which others have to complete.When they are done with a task they have to mark it "completed" and make a report on what they have done and used to perform this task.Vip Task Manager has a button which directs them to an upload form, now when they press the "open" button I would like this to happen: Open a certain report making program I made myself.When they finished writing their report and press save, the program saves this report on a dedicated network HDD (.txt file) and closes itself.Then add the file or link to the upload form in Vip Task Manager.What it all comes down to is that they dont have to minimize Vip task manager, open the report making software, save it, go to vip task manager, press upload, press open, look where this file is saved, select it, and upload it.now, typed in red is whats already been taken care of.The rest, I have no idea where to begin to be honest.First I want to find out how to retrieve that a button is pressed in a existing program.

Unknown File Type www.xtremevbtalk.com

Here at work, we use software that we bought to create reports. This program generates some files for a report. One is plain-text that defines the tables in the report. Another file saves the association between tables and report banners (like titles, but the data depends on these banners as well as the table structure.) This file, however is not plain text.The text file for the report is like 60,000 lines and was manually done, so i wrote code to generate this file from the data in our DB. Now I want to create the banners from our DB too.Can someone help me figure out what format this file is in? I tried .DBF and tried handling it like a file from ADO rs.Save, but to no avail.Here is some of the file:Code:ÿÿ                         $ % & * + , 0 1 2 < = > ?

Currently, the reports are bundled into one program. What I would like to do is make it so that there is one parent form, and the customer can purchase each report seperatly. The reports would be integrated into the main program. Each report has different controls on a form.Each time the program is started it would look to see what reports the user has, check the license for each report, and begin the program showing the reports that are available.Is that possible? I thought it may be possible with an ActiveX EXE, but I don't know how I would get the main program to use it.Thank you for any advise.

Change Word Document Properties www.xtremevbtalk.com

I did a search and there are lots of threads about printing in landscape mode from VB. What I want to do is write a Word Document such that when someone opens the Word Doc it appears in landscape mode. Let me explain what I am doing:I am generating a report from a call to a SQL table. I cycle through the rows returned and write out an HTML table to "Report.doc" then when I go open the document it converts it to an HTML doc and displays the data. That is fine, but the file is in not in landscape mode, so the longer lines get wrapped up quite a bit within the table. Is this a good way to generate the report? And if so, is there some setting I can put into the file to make it landscape mode when the user opens the report with Word? Is there a better way to format the output from the SQL call into a Word Document? As far as my program is concerned the file I am writing to is a pain text file, I never use the Word plug-in for this at all./<evin

Determine If Program Closed Due To An Error. www.vbforums.com

Is there a way to determine if a program was closed as a result of an error?My program adds 1 to intInstances on Form_Load and writes it to a file on the server. On Form_Unload it subtracts 1 and writes it to the file again. (of course this is after reading intInstances from the file).I have another program that will copy the new version of my program to the server if there are no instances running. If there are instances running it will create a temp.exe file. The next time my program is started, if it is the only instance running (intInstances = 1) it will ask to replace the main executable with the temp.exe.Obviously code like this will NOT work if intInstances is incorrect in the file. Well I still have a few bugs in my program and it closes early sometimes, and doesn't get to subtract 1 from intInstances and write it to the file.I would like to write a procedure for Form_Load that will check to see if the program closed unexpectedly the last time it was running, and subtract 1 from intInstances if it was.Can anyone tell me how to determine this?Your help is GREATLY appreciated!

Moving A Custom VB6 Program To A New PC - Install Disk Lost - TLB Register www.vbforums.com

I AM FLYING BY THE SEAT OF MY PANTS!First off, I am not a VB6 programmer. My past includes programming in languages such as Cobol, Fortran, Basic, Apple Basic, SQL, some HTML, etc. but I have been on the tech side of things for the last 10+ years with occasional troubleshooting in different languages as needed.My problem: Installed a new hard drive for a client and performed a fresh XP Home install due to possible corruption in the old drive's XP registry. Client gave me a list of all the programs to move over and forgot about a database program used for their business that they had custom-made. They have no Install CD or disk and we can't locate the programmer. I do, however, have the old hard drive and the program still functions in XP. The only module of the program not working is "Reports". An uninstall log does exist - is it possible to create an INSTALL file this Uninstall file? Using what I know, I created a batch files that copies and registers the DLLs but don't know how to register the TLB & OLB files (STDOLE2.TLB, MSADO20.TLB, MSACC9.OLB). What's happening with the "Reports" module:Error message: Error opening file. File could not be opened: "Invoice Report", at file location: "Invoice Report"I click OK and then, after I select the report parameters, I get Run-time error '20535': Unable to connect: incorrect session parameters.Online I found regasm.exe but am not sure if I should use this and I found Run-time error 20535 but I am going in circles.Additional info: The program was originally written in 1999-2000 and then updated in 2002 (for XP?) and programmer is not to be found. ANY help is appreciated!

Multiple Check Boxes www.vbcity.com

I am trying to writing a report writing program using VB.Net. I have no experience with Visual Basic, in the sense that I have not written a program with VB or VB.Net. I plan to make the program a MDI application. I found a Wizard .Net Component from Actipro Software to create what I am calling a "Report Wizard". The "Report Wizard" form is a MDI Child form. On the programs menu I have a Report Wizard menu item. When it is clicked the "Report Wizard" starts and displays a form that collects the initial report information (Date, Time, Report Number, Name of Person Writing Report, etc.). At the bottom of this form I want to have 4 check boxes (Example: Check all that apply: Informant, Victim, Witness, Suspect). The next forms to be displayed will be dependant on what check boxes are checked (Be it all 4 or any combination of the four). If, for example, the check box Informant, Victim and Suspect are checked, then the next form to be displayed is the informant form. When that form is complete, then the next form will be the Victim form, etc.My question, finally, is how do I keep track of what check boxes were checked as I go through the "Report Wizard"? I need the program to know that after the Informant form is finished the next form in the "Report Wizard" is the Victim form and then the Suspect form.As of right now I have no code to show, because I do not know where to start.Any and all help would be greatly appreciated to point me in the right direction.

Distribute Crystal Report With VB6 www.xtremevbtalk.com

Hi,I finished creating a program, wich uses crystal report. The problem is that when I use the PDW (Package and Deployment Wizard), it shows three dlls files that need and it doesn't found. u2dpost.dll, u2fsepv.dll and u2fxml.dll, these are the files. These files I found it on the internet and downloaded it, and added it in the PDW. Then, I just installed the program in another computer, it copies all the files and register all the ocx and dlls files, but when it opens the report it gave me a runtime error: 50003 Application-defined or Object-defined error. I look for this error on the internet, but there isn't much about this error. I try another method but it gave an error indicating that it cannot open the report, and when I look for the report it appears that it doesn't recognize the file type (.rpt).I'm using Crystal Report XI Developer Edition and Visual Basic 6 Professional.Is there someone who can refer me an article or give me a suggestion? Is there a way to distribute Crystal Report XI Developer Edition with VB6 Applications?Thanks in advanced,TRONPR

Crystal And ODBC (RDO) www.xtremevbtalk.com

I have vb6 (sp5) using Crystal 8.0 and Sql Server 2000 (sp3). My program calls a rpt file that has several sub reports one of which was created using the datasource ODBC (RDO). I've deployed the vb program using p&dw but the report only seems to run on machines that happen to have the VB development environment installed. On other machines the report fails with error 20599 Cannot Open Sql Server.Testing has shown that removing the sub report that was created with the ODBC (rdo) datasource allows the report to run without error (and of course without the sub report info).The setup file includes MSRDO20.DLL. Any ideas on what else may need to be included to allow this type of rdo sub report to run?thanks - ron

Batch Copying Of Files? www.daniweb.com

I am busy writing a application that i can set up a list of files to copy from one location to a remote network drive. THe program has a list of "jobs" in a datagrid that it loops through and executes in sequence. What i have now is a background worker that reports the status of which job it is on (File 1 of 5) but i would like something that shows the status of the current copying file as sometimes large files can look like it's stopped on the network I am using the System.io.file.copy structure, but have also tried the my.computer.filesystem.copyfile (which shows the status in a "windows" copy box) So, what i would like is some guidance on how to create a function that will copy the file but also report back progress periodicly. I don't want to read and write byte for byte as im worried this will be too slow. Also, is there a better way/function to use to copy files? Looking for best speed
