I have been looking for examples for this but only come up with Databases and such like ..

I am wanting to make a report in Crystal reports ... but the source of the data is simply what is supplied by the contents of Textboxes via an application form     ........  

User inputs data into the textboxes then once the required fields have been filled in the report is previewed by the user then if data looks correct can print it off.

Can this be done?  Any examples or tutorials I might can see showing this process?

you could accumulate all your data into a dataset object or directly pass textbox values (if your number of texboxes is fixed) to CR. see http://www.emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2006/09/Feeding-Crystal-Reports-from-your-application.aspx

Perhaps the easiest way to do this would be to use formulas for all the fields on the report and change them from the application.  The problem with this approach is you will have trouble with field widths.

I think either approach suggested would solve the issue.

Recommend SPLIT emoreau(18872100) and mlmcc(18872399)
