VB.Net and Dynamics

P: n/a

Does anybody know if there is a way to dynamically have a dataset linked to a predefined crystal report? The project initially was created to deal with a few static reports but now my client has the need for much more reporting and it would be much easier to do this dynamically, if at all possible

Current situation
User is coming from a form where parameters for a report are specified. These are then passed to the form that will generate the Crystal Report. From this point, a dataset would be created and based on the information, the query that was sent to the database would be displayed in the CrystalReportViewer.

I have yet to figure out a way around this because the crystal report cannot be created without a predefined dataset, and this would seem to suggest that the dataadapter would also have to be predefined. :(

Is there a better way of doing this??
