Greetings,
I'm sure someone out there has experience using Crystal Reports via the web for an intranet application. What are the options: I can think of two, Convert on the server and submit to client(browser) as html or download an activeX contol to the browser.

Which option works best and how should I impliment?

Thanks,
Brad

1.  you can turn a crystal report into a stand alone
executable that can be fired and viewed remotely, however,
you would have to update that executable and it would be
'view' only (no user set parameters).

2.  use crystal info automatically update, convert a report
to html and distribute that report to your server on whatever
basis you choose.  c-info also allows a viewer to enter parameters if you have set those up.

in reference to answer 2) how closely does the html conversion mirror the actual report and where do I get crystal info (is it part of crystal reports) or a separate product?

Thanks,
Brad

the html conversion is identical to the report you create/
view in regular crystal.  info includes a crystal viewer
and 5 user licenses.  (you can get more as well).  Crystal
info is a separate product specifically designed for these
distribution activities.
you might try the Microwarehouse
(800-367-7080) or one of the other clearing houses.  or you can
always contact seagate directly (800-877-2340).  

(and, no i am not affiliated with seagate in any way;  its
just a good, solid product, unlike certain new operating
systems that have just come out and are incompatible with
developer software  :=) :=) )
