Using CrystalReportViewer

HI,

How can i use CrystalReportViewer to view Crystal report in my asp.net page. I don't want to install Crystal Report accompanied by VS 2005 instead i install Crsytal Report XI Release 2.

My first question is, is this possible to use CrystalReportViewer without installing VS 2005 Crystal Report? Second, how do i integrate Crsytal Report XI Release 2 and VS 2005? So that all the reports (.rpt) created in my Crsytal Report XI Release 2 can be viewed in my asp.net page.

thanks

    Hi

    It sounds like you want to create your reports with Crsytal Reports XI Release 2, but you want to view them in an ASP.NET page. You don't want to use the VS 2005 to design your reports because the standard one is better. I hope I got this right.

    To use the CrystalReportViewer in .NET you don't need to create your reports with VS 2005, but it will be very hard to view them over the web without VS 2005. The CrystalReportViewer object is required to view the reports over the web using asp.net.

    So I'm not exactly sure if you don't want to use VS2005 to create your application or if you just don't want to use it to create the Reports.

    To add reports to your applicaton just put them in the application folder and call them from your application using the CrystalReportsViewer.

      Hi rhorne,

      Thanks for the reply. Anyway, what exactly i want is create a report using CR XI Release 2 and display it from my asp.net wep application and im using VS 2005 to create my project but i dont want to install Crystal report shipped with VS 2005. Im hoping that when i install CR XI Release 2 it will be integrated into VS 2005 so i can use the Crystal Enging and the crystalreportviewer of CR XI Release 2 not the CR.Net of VS 2005.

      Btw, my license of CR XI is professional edition. So when i install CR XI Release 2 i enter the KeyCode of my CR XI Professional edition. But i still cannot use the crystalreportviwer.

       

      Hope i clear myself.

      thanks

    This is more of a developer question than a report design question which is what this forum is focused on. Please post this question in the developer forum (http://diamond.businessobjects.com/forum/32 )
