What version of CR are you using?

There is a report compiler available.. It came with versions 7 and earlier.  It is available from the CR web page.  Look at

Download from

Another option is to write an application in VB or another language and display the report from that. This is how I am doing it for my users.  Here is a sample

A third option is the report viewer also available from CR.  I am not sure how this works but I believe you only have to have the report and data available to the user.  I may try this approach for users who only need to see the reports and not use the large application we are writing.
I'll try to find a link to it.

good luck
