Add FileExists function to Crystal Reports

Issue: How can a FileExists function be added to Crystal Reports?

Solution: The basic steps are to add the U2lwin32.DLL to 2 locations:

  1. The folder where Crystal Reports Developer is installed. The video shows an easy way to find this location.
  2. The folder where LABWORKS installs the Crystal Run-time files. The location I’ve found is here “C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Crystal Reports for .NET Framework 4.0\Common\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86” NOTE this location may change slightly with different versions of LABWORKS.

Once the dll is deployed, you can then utilize it within your Crystal Functions:
