Here the code
using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Collections;

using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Data;

// Add this using directive. 
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace CrystalReportsTest
    public class Form1 : System.Windows.Forms.Form
        private System.Diagnostics.Process notePad;
        private CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.CrystalReportViewer CrystalReportViewer1;
        private System.Windows.Forms.Button cmdExportToNotePad;
        private System.ComponentModel.Container components = null;

        // These are the Win32 error code for file not found or access denied.
        const int ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND =2;
        const int ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED = 5;

        private void cmdExportReportNotePad_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            // Invoke the Exort report dialog. Be sure and save the text
            // report to the My Documents directory. That is where the
            // printing routine will look for it.

            //Print exported ascii report in NotePad

        public void PrintDoc()
            Process notePad = new Process(); 
                // Get the path that stores user documents. [My Documents]
                string myDocumentsPath = 
                        Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolde r.Personal);

                // The exported file to be printed is assigned here.
                notePad.StartInfo.FileName = myDocumentsPath + "\\TestNotePad.txt"; 
                notePad.StartInfo.Verb = "Print";
                notePad.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
                notePad.Start(); // Process opens NotePad and Prints exported text report.
            // Note that if your word processor generates exceptions
            // such as this, they are handled first.
            catch (Win32Exception e)
                if(e.NativeErrorCode == ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)
                    Console.WriteLine(e.Message + ". Check the path.");
                else if (e.NativeErrorCode == ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED)
                    Console.WriteLine(e.Message + 
                            ". You do not have permission to print this file.");

        private void CrystalReportViewer1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            // CrystalReportTest is the report to export to text
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = new CrystalReportTest();

            // Export tool bar button is removed prorammatically
            // so that user's must use the programmed button.
            CrystalReportViewer1.ShowExportButton = true;
