Please kindly assist.
Am working on a project using VB6, MSSQL 2000 AND CRYSTAL REPORT.
Some of the reports are very large and it takes a lot of time for crystal report to load.
I want to create a separate form that has progress bar, the form should be displayed modally. The progressbar should show the current status of the report and when the report finish loading, the form containing the progress bar should disappear remaining only the the report displayed on crystal report.
Please help me with sample code

Unless the Crystal Reports COM objects offer some kind of Progress() method, you won't know how long it will take the report to run. And from my experience with Crystal programming, even if such a method was available, it'll be damn near impossible to use it in code.

The sooner you can move off of Crystal Reports, the happier you'll be.
