    Exclamation Unanswered: Help! Need Help Running Business Objects Report

    Hi,

    I am currently trying to get MS Access 2000 to open a business objects (v5.i) report and export the file to a location on my harddrive.
    Business Objects is a reporting tool like Crystal reports. I'm trying to link to it using VBA. There is an item listed for Business objects in the References setion but i do not know how to use this.

    Can anyone help me open a business objects report in Access 2000?
    Does anyone know if access has the capability to open the report & run the export command from within it?

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Shuja.

    I don't have an example to refer to but Crystal has an ActiveX control that you can add to an Access form. You can then use that control to open reports.

    Exclamation Help! Need Help Running Business Objects Report

    Hi,

    Business Objects does have an Active X control but i do not know the syntax of setting it up & using it in VBA.
    Also, i don't know if the ActiveX control is similar to the crystal reports one.
    If anyone can give me an example of using an activeX control in this kind of context, i may be able to get the Business objects one set up in a similar fashion.

    Thanx,

    Shuja.
