running Crystal Report from a dll RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1765513424 posted

    We have a Visual Studio C# project that contains some Crystal Reports, and is compiled as a DLL.  I want to run those reports for debugging purposes.

    I've set up another project that references the DLL, and created an *.aspx page to call the report but I keep getting parser error messages, because it won't recognise the CodeFile/CodeBehind from another project. I'm not getting anywhere on google, can someone point me in the right direction?  Does anyone know of a tutorial somewhere that explains how this is done, step by step?

    At the very minimum you'll need to provide the error.  Is the DLL from a library created in another project?  Does the DLL work in the other project?

    The DLL was created in another project (which I have no sight of, but I'm told does work).  

    I suppose what I'm asking for is if anyone knows of a step by step guide to how you would run a Crystal Report from a DLL, because at the moment it's all guesswork and so I'm getting many and varied error messages.  Google hasn't turned up anything specific enough, unfortunately.

    At a minimum we need the error message.  "varied error message" is not specific enough to make a guess.  You might as well as ask "How long is the string?".

    The DLL was created in another project (which I have no sight of, but I'm told does work).  

    If you were told the custom DLL works then I would go back to the folks that gave you this information and ask for clarification.
