Converting VS 2003 Crystal reports to VS 2005 crystal reports - need help


    I have converted a VS 2003 project that has few Crstalreports in it to VS 2005. All the dlls got converted good except the Crystalreports part. I have a sub routine called ExportReport() in a page called GenerateReport.aspx page in VS 2003 which generates the report in a word or excel etc... based on what user selects.  

Tthe first line I have is

Dim myReport as new CrystalReport1

and this works perfect in VS 2003. But when I converted the entire project to VS 2005 it CrystalReport is not recognised by the IDE and I see a blue line underneath.

So as a remedy I also tried adding





references to to my VS 2005 project by right clicking on the project and by picking the "Add Reference..."   option but it doesn't seem like it did some thing for me and it still "CrystalReport1"  in my VS 2005.


Have any one run into this kind of conversion from VS 2003 to VS 2005? Please advice.



Thanks in advance,

VS .net 2005 Crystal reports ok to run on Crystal Reports XI?
I am getting mixed messages from the website hosting providers - some say they do not support Crystal Reports due to a $25,000 per cpu licensing fee, others say all I need to do is install Crystal Reports XI (about $500) on a dedicated server and it will run fine. Will Reports developed with the embeded Crystal Reports in VS 2005 run in a Crystal Reports XI environment? Thanks....

Reporting (Crystal Reports vs. Custom .NET)
Ok, so I have to confess, I have never tried Crystal Reports. I just recently started working for a marketing company now and reporting is VERY important to them.  I am currently migrating a lot of the applications they use from VB5 and VB6 to web based .NET 3.5 apps.   The whole company is running off ACCESS databases if you can believe that.  They sometimes have up to a few hundred agents taking sales on incoming calls and chat sessions and they are all getting streamed to FLAT file records (completely un-normalized database).  I am in the process of developing a c...

Export Crystal Report to Crystal Report format

Crystal Reports vs SQL Reporting Services
Hi all! May I ask which is better to use: Crystal Reports or SQL Reporting Services? Thanks to all. What are your reporting needs?  This will likely dictate one solution over another moreso than anybody's personal recommendations. My personal experience with Crystal (9.x and below) is that you'll be struggling for a while to get reporting that even works (especially web-based reporting).  Reporting Services, on the other hand, has always just worked for me.  But, there are certainly limitations with both products. So, my personal preferences are in the following order.&nbs...
