How do I open Crystal Reports XI reports through VBA/Accesss 2003?


I am trying to open/view Crystal Reports reports through an application that I built.  I have the names of the reports (and the filepath) stored in a table.  Then I have an interface that creates a dynamic SQL statement (dates, categories, etc.).  Then there is a button to allow the end user to open the selected report w/ set parameters.  

Problem #1: I don't know how to tell Access to open Crystal Reports XI.

Problem #2: I, also, don't know how to pass parameters from Access to Crystal Reports.

Is there any links to tutorials out there?  ...Reasonable tutorials

Thank you in advance.

This article basically says I need to have the developer's edition.  I have the Professional version.  I need something that will say this is how you connect access to crystal reports and this is how you get access to open crystal to view the select report.

Does that make sense?
