        Crystal is not a bad way to do reports, but the version supplied

with VB 3.0 under Win 3.1 requires a lot of free resources in order to

run errorless.

        Reports under Access require you execute the Access program from

within VB via Execute ( something like that or SHELL ). If you do not

have the Access runtime ($300-400 extra) then your client must have the

Access interactive program. Neither is a clean solution!

        Or you can use the VB Print commands and go crazy with field

position calculations !

        Good Luck either way
