I am trying to export crystal report to pdf. but i am getting folloing error: "Error in File C:\DOCUME~1\MKM-BA~1\ASPNET\LOCALS~1\Temp\temp_0c6b2c59-df8a-4b26-a570-a2189ee212ac.rpt: Access to report file denied. Another program may be using it."

It works with other reports but not this one.

Code using for export:
Dim myExportOptions As CrystalDecisions.Shared.ExportOptions
Dim myDiskFileDestinationOptions As CrystalDecisions.Shared.DiskFileDestinationOptions
Dim myExportFile As String

myExportFile = "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\" & Session.SessionID.ToString & ".pdf"
myDiskFileDestinationOptions = New CrystalDecisions.Shared.DiskFileDestinationOptions
myDiskFileDestinationOptions.DiskFileName = myExportFile
myExportOptions = crystalReport31.ExportOptions
With myExportOptions
.DestinationOptions = myDiskFileDestinationOptions
.ExportDestinationType = .ExportDestinationType.DiskFile
.ExportFormatType = .ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat
End With
crystalReport31.Export()

Thanks in advance

When you load the report (crystalReport31.Load(..)), there's an overload
for that method, that has a parameter to indicate how to open the report:

if you use the temp copy option, it should not lock the report when you
open it, which is what I think is happening.

Thanks Craig for reply
by default it opens as temporary copy.
it does not give any error if i try word document instead of pdf.
i m not using load() anywhere

sorry, that's all I had; it's been awhile since I've done CR, and I
thought this fixed my problem like this back then. I didn't notice by
default that was set. You might try the CR forums at http://asp.net or
the CR developer zone at:

Hi Mandar,

In addition to Craig's suggestion. You can also ask the Crystal Report
service support through the guides in the following kb article:

#How To Get Help with Crystal Reports - International and U.S.
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=100368

Thanks.


Thanks.

3 steps cleared this up for me.

1) You need to set in InetMgr the folder you are exporting to to be Write
enabled.
2) Also in InetMgr, under the porperties for your export folder, you need to
set the Application Pool setting to: MSSharePointAppPool.
3) And finally, you need to set, under Windows Explorer, the security level
for the export folder to Everyone=Full Control.

This should clear you up....did for me when I had this *exact* same problem.

But don't take just my word for it:
