I am using the Crystal Report Viewer for a web app.  My problem is that I want the user to click an export button and have them then be prompted to where they would like to save the report along with the format (xls,pdf).  Something along the lines of a Savefiledialog but for the web.  I have been able to export by using "System.Net.WebClient - webclient.downloadfile" and "crystalreport1.export" but I need the prompt for the user.  Does the viewer have an export button that I am not aware of?

Which version and edition of Crystal?

Crystal v8 has an export button from the VB viewer.  I am not familiar with the web viewer.

Check for properties like EnableExportButton, ShowExportButton, etc

According to this link there is no export from the viewer in .NET
Do a search for export in the pdf.  In my search it was the first export found

There's no export support that I've found on the .Net WEB viewer.  You can export from .Net WINDOWS viewer.

Obviously that's of no help in to you here - just an FYI.
