Using Crystal Reports 8.5 with .Net

Hi,

In my ASP.NET web application project we need to design
crystal reports with Crystal Reports version 8.5
enterpraise edition(Please Note:It is not the Crystal
Reports that comes with VisualStudio.NET). Also the
Crsyatl Report software 8.5 version will not be installed
in the IIS web server which is hosting my ASP.NET web
application. It will be installed in a different server
which has .net and IIS 5.0.

My question is
1)How to server crsytal reports to client from other
server(where Crsyatl reports is installed) when a request
of report is made to my web server???

2)Can we use Crystal report web viewer control provided
with .net along with Crsyatl Reoprts 8.5 also?? are we
need to use activex control to show the reprts

Thanks
Raghu

Hi

We did exactly the same thing, since designing reports using the Crystal IDE
is much easier - developed the reports in Crystal 8.5 IDE, added them to the
project in VS.Net, wrote some code (lots of samples available) to open and
view report using .Net Crystal libraries. One thing you should remember,
once you open a report in the .Net IDE and save it, it is upgraded to
version 9, and cannot be opened in Crystal 8.5 IDE again, so save your
report seperately in 8.5 format for if/when you need to make changes to it.

Hope this helps
