Here's some shareware but I have no idea if they're any good.  Make sure you check your CR license agreement before doing this to be certain you aren't in violation with this approach!

up to version 8.5 you can also use the report distribution wizard from crystal (also called compiled reports). it's part of older crystal installations, for 8 and 8.5 you have to download it here

This gives you an interactive viewer (free of licensing it seems) ie for refreshing the report, passing parameters, exporting...

Here is more info

I would like to know at a fairly high level - what is involved in publishing Crystal Reports on the Web - internet.
I need to know what Crystal Product I need?  Currently I have Crystal Reports 10 Advanced Developer with 5 named users.
Is there anyone who could recommend white papers and/or folks who can work with a bank to publish interactive reports
to a URL from a SQL Server.

Thanks
