Crystal Reports & Compact Framework Integration on the Desktop

P: n/a
Hi experts.

I am using VB.Net 2005 as my development environment.

I have created an application for the Pocket PC. The data is
transferred to the desktop via OpenNETCF and then I use SQL Compact
Server 2005 to process the data on the desktop with a final export to
Access format.

I have Crystal Reports XI and my VB.Net 2005 is also bundled with CR
functionality. I created reports directly in CR XI and now need to be
able to use them in .Net.

Here is where I get lost. When I created my RPT file it had me connect
to the database (Access 2002) and then add a table and fields.

It works great except now that I am porting to my .Net app, the
database my embedded CR needs to connect to will always be changing
(dynamic). The table and field names will always remain the same. It
is just the file name that changes, based on user inputs.

So are there any tutorials, literature, help that anyone can point me
to so I can get on with my steep learning curve? I started programming
in VB.net and developing CR's just a short time ago and would
appreciate a 'dumbed' down explanation so I can get a handle on this.

Thanks for any help or advice offered.

Regards
