You compiled your VB project (with reference to crystal reports) into an exe file.
Your executable uses report(files) thrue the crystal report control.

What do you mean by 'can i add them as "exe" files.'
Sorry, I don't understand your problem

Yes It is possible. You have to follow these steps:-

1) If you are able to make the EXE file of crystal reports.
then If you are directly accessing this exe from menu bar. Yiu have to use "shell" command. In the Shell command's parameter specify the path of the exe file. Alternatively you can select the exe file through open filedialogue box and can store the path of the exe file in a variable. Then simply pass that variable as a parameter to the shell command. It will automacially run the corresponding reports.If still you have problem you can give me complete synopsis of your problem on my given email address mikku_kumar@rediffmail.com.
