Crystal Report on ASP.net

Good day all, i'm new to crystal report, and i find it interesting. I created a report using crystal 9 designer which connection and query are already in the report, in fact i can run the report on the designer side already. My question is, can i call up the report on ASP without using the dataset binding? all i can find in the web is only by using dataset binding. if its possible how? Thank you!

    Yes, it is possible. See the Crystal for VS wiki here for information about the .NET SDK and links to sample code that will show you how to do this.

    Also, Crystal 9 is very old and has been out of support for over 10 years and any SDK that may have been installed with it no longer has valid licenses. Reports created with it should still run using the SDK, but you probably want to look at upgrading them. The SDK includes a report designer that is integrated with Visual Studio, so you wouldn't necessarily have to upgrade Crystal itself in order to do this. One of the major advantages of upgrading is that you'll be able to connect using newer database middleware that became available after Crystal9 went out of support.
