    How will you deliver your reports to your users?

    You MUST have a database connection to design the report - that's the only way that Crystal will know what the tables look like (field names, field types, etc.) However, if you are writing an application to deliver your report, the SDK will allow you to set the database location at runtime.

    There also are a number of third-party viewers available that might let you do this. A good starting point to find something is at [http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html].
