How to create Crystal report in using Store Procedure

Introduction: In this post I try to explain how we can generate Crystal Reports in using Store Procedure.
Firstly I created a Store Procedure to display records CRYSTAL_REPORT.

Take a New project. Here I take project name Example. After go to Solution Explorer and right click on Project >> Add >>New Item as mention in below attached image:

Add new item window will be open. Click on Reporting >> Crystal reports as mention in snapshot:

Here i keep its name Example.rpt. Now you see Crystal reports wizard will be open. See below attached snapshot:

Select As a Blank report. Now you see Example.rpt page will open as shown in attached snapshot:

After that Right click (any where in reports file) >> Database >> Database Expert as show in below attached image:

New Data window will be open. Select OLE DB (ADO) as shown in image:

New OLE DB (ADO) window will be open. Select Sql server Native as mention in snapshot:

After click on Next button which will redirect you to next page. Here enter your Sql server information. Here I enter sql server name and select Database name. See the attached snapshot:

Note: Select integrated Security if your Authentication mode is Window Authentication.
Click on Next button again and on next page click on Finish button. See the below Attached image:

Now you see connection has been added to your Data. Click on Connection >> Database Name (TestBlog) >> Select Store Procedure as shown in below attached snapshot:

Select Store Procedure that for you to create Crystal Reports. Here select the CRYSTAL_REPORT and click on ok button. See the attached snapshot:

After you will be on Reports page again. Now go to Field Explorer>> Database Fields>> CRYSTAL_REPORT as show in image:

Drag and drop the fields from Database fields to Reports Details section as shown in below attached snapshot:

Note: Don’t forget to add Column headline in Page Header section. See the attached snapshot:

You can also check the layout of Report. Click on Main Report Preview tab. See snapshot:

Now add a new webform to Project. Drag and drop the CrystalReportViewer control from Toolbox >> Reporting. See attached snapshot:

Now go to .aspx.cs page and write the below mention code:

using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Configuration;
using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;
using CrystalDecisions.Shared;

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Data Source=SYS-1F78031ED0A;Initial Catalog=TestBlog;Integrated Security=True");
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("CRYSTAL_REPORT", con);
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                SqlDataAdapter adp = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
                DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                ReportDocument report = new ReportDocument();
                CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = report;
            catch (Exception ex)


In VB (.aspx.vb)

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Configuration
Imports CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine
Imports CrystalDecisions.Shared

Private con As New SqlConnection("Data Source=SYS-1F78031ED0A;Initial Catalog=TestBlog;Integrated Security=True")
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
            Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("CRYSTAL_REPORT", con)
            cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            Dim adp As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
            Dim ds As New DataSet()
            Dim report As New ReportDocument()
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = report
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub

Now run the project and check the result.
