XML snippet stored in Oracle, how do I display the XML content?

I am building a report in Crystal Reports XI and I have a XML snippet stored in a Oracle table that I need to render in the report. I have the corresponding XSD & XSL files for validation & display but I do not know how to perform the transform inside of Crystal Reports to render the content correctly. Anyone on here know how? I checked the XML & ADO.NET XML drivers but both expect a file on the drive not XML content returned as part of a recordset from a Stored Procedure.

    Sorry I don't think there is any way to do that. There is one thing that you could try that might work. There is a setting in the Crystal Reports Viewer that allows you to embed HTML inside of reports and it lets render the HTML inside of a HTML page.

    Look up web-elements in diamond. it tells you how to configure the viewer to do this. It might work to allow you to render the XML.

    Generally this is turned off for security cross scripting reasons.
