    Crystal Reports provides a runtime viewer for reports that have already been designed. There is no component that will allow you to give your users the ability to design their own reports unless you provide them a copy of Crystal Reports. If you require the need of letting your own users create reports then you may want to look at the Web Intelligence product which allows for adhoc reporting. However, this product is available with the Business Object Enterprise suite so if you need to embedd the reporting aspect into your own application, this may not work for you.
