I believe it is possible.  But it may require all your users to have runtime licenses for Crystal which, last I checked, cost $199 per user.

A way that should work with out requiring the license is to put the formula on the report during design then changing the formula from the code.

From VB it is done liek this

                For k = 1 To crRpt.FormulaFields.Count
                    If (UCase$(crRpt.FormulaFields(k).Name) = "YOURFORMULA")  Then
                        crRpt.FormulaFields(k).Text = "Your Formula in a string"
                    End If
                Next k

Prasad,

I believe you can do it and it doesn't require a runtime license (you get distribution rights for the OEM version as part of Visual Studio).  mlmcc is correct though that you're going to be *far* better off simply placing the formula on your report, even if it's completely blank, and modifying the formula contents at runtime.  If this works for you, I have a sample of the .net code I can give you but you'll need to let me know if you're writing a Windows app or a Web app because as I recall the code is slightly different.

Piece of cake to modify a formula:

  MyReportDocument.DataDefinition.FormulaFields("YourFormulaName").Text = "{field1} * {field2}"

You'll need to write th formula w/in the quotes just like you would in the Crystal editor, so enclose strings in single quotes, etc.
