I have certain number of reports that are developed using Crystal Reports 11..

How can i access these reports from within a webpage.. i mean within my ASP.NET Application... I'm using VS2005 with C# code behind and SQLServer backend

I mean Crystal report developers will design and develop reports and will then post is to a certain forder in the server.. what i want to do is to provide a hyperlink with a report name... so that when this hyperlink is clicked..I want to then open up a report from the given location where these files physically exists..

Any help in this regard will be greatly appreciated!!!!

Thanks,
Collin

hi

you will have to use crystal methods.

using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;
using CrystalDecisions.Shared;

ReportDocument r = new ReportDocument();
r.Load(reportPath);

MemoryStream ms;
// pdf format
ms= (MemoryStream)r.ExportToStream(CrystalDecisions.Shared.ExportFormatType.PortableDocFormat);

you can use couple of these functions.
