Hello Everyone,

I want to Generate and Save a Crystal Report based on user selections file Format(from Drop down list.

Dim filename As String = ds.Tables(0).Rows(0)("reportoutfile")
Response.ContentType = "applicaiton/octet-stream"

Line 1: reportoutfile is Parameter having File name.
Line 3: What will be the parameter of Response.WriteFile?

And where should be path of my report?

1 solution

Generally if any file need to download the following code can do that
string file_path=Server.MapPath("~/files/"+file_name);
HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment;filename=\"" + file_Name + "\"");

For crystal report I guess you need to take help of Crystal Report viewer control to create crystal report file.

FileNotFoundException raised when file not found to a specific location. So I guess your file_path value is wrong. You just debug the code and see the value of file_path and find out that the file physically exists in this location (file_path).
