Advice on how to integrate Crystal

My aim is to allow users to run/display reports via a web page provided by an existing ASP.Net application, using an XML data source. Please could someone advise how to integrate Crystal into this application. Which Crystal product(s) would be suitable?

    You can consume XML two ways. Directly by using the native drivers provided with Crystal Reports or via a ADO.NET recordsets. Though Crystal Reports has been able to consume XML for many releases the XML consumption has been significantly improved in Crystal Reports 2008. To build an ASP.NET application you can drag & drop the visual control from the Visual Studio toolbox onto the web page surface then use the smart tag to create a new report. When choosing the data source you have several options. I recommend having a look at the "Consume, Produce, Transform XML with Crystal Reports 2008" presentation from the Business Objects developer conference for more details.
