ActiveX Crystal Reports

What is the name of the ActiveX Crystal Report control that I can use in a program like Access?

I want to be able to pass parameters to a Crystal Report, and have the report print out.

I have a crystal viewer control, but I can't seem to to get it to work right/don't know how to use it.  Is this the control I use, or do I need another one, and where can I get it.

Thanks!

I think you need CR 8.5 Developer to get the appropriate controls to use within Access.
