How to export as HTML



We are currently using crystal reports server (Version11.5) to schedule and deliver reports. What we would like to do is schedule reports to be generated on the Crystal reports server and then save the results to a file location where they can be viewed by an outside web application. What we are interested in is getting chart data out of these reports and putting the charts on a webpage. I see in the Crystal reports designer we can export to HTML and the chart is converted to a PNG image. This image is what we would like to put on a different website, however in Crystal reports server there is no option to export to HTML. I find this an odd limitation that you can manually export to HTML but you can't automate exporting to HTML through Crystal Reports server. Does anyone know if this truly is a limitation of Crystal Reports server or is there a way to configure it to allow this export option?
