Visual Basic >> Question about Crystal Reports

Hi,

i hope you can help me, or point me to the correct newsgroup.

I created a report using Crystal Reports (version 6).
Is it possible to run the report without having to start Crystal Reports?

Thanks in advance.

Yes and no. You don't have to start the Crystal Reports application
(chances are your users won't have it), but you do have to use the Crystal
Reports engine. Add the Crystal Reports custom control to your project and
then add the control to a form. Set properties and call methods of the
control to display the report within your application. You will need to
redistribute the control and all of its supporting files (there's a ton of
them) with your application.
