I am evaluating RAS 9 and want to know what is the bare minimium code/files required to view a crystal report using ASP? I'm not a programmer. I have downloaded all the samples and read through the SDK and RAS documentation. It seems to be geared to the report develepers. I have the reports, I just need users to view them via our intranet. I prefer the ActiveX viewer. Do you have to use RequiredSteps.asp, MoreRequiredSteps.asp, rtpServer.asp, etc? In the documentaion they have example code that I cant get to work:
<PARAM NAME="EnableDrillDown" VALUE=1>
<PARAM NAME="EnableExportButton" VALUE=1>
<PARAM NAME="DisplayGroupTree" VALUE=1>
<PARAM NAME="EnableGroupTree" VALUE=1>
<PARAM NAME="EnablePrintButton" VALUE=1>
<PARAM NAME="EnableZoomControl" VALUE=1>

Set webBroker = CreateObject("WebReportBro
if err.number <> 0 then
window.alert "_LOC_The Crystal ActiveX Viewer is unable to create its resource objects_ENDLOC_."
Set webSource0 = CreateObject("WebReportSou
webSource0.ReportSource = webBroker
webSource0.URL = "my.rpt"
CRViewer.ReportSource = webSource0
I have modified the samples and the closest I've gotten with the 4-5 file method is seeing it time-out after 20 minutes of some type of network activity. I like 8.5 where you could just open http://server/my.rpt
and see your report. What happened to that? Our developers are using CR9 to make the reports now. I might be missing something simple but I have yet to see an eazy guide to web view a CReport for RAS9.
