I  have an app developed in vs2005 ASP.NET 2.0 and I am using the integrated Crystal Reports for my reporting. I need to be able to pass a SQL statement to the report, is this possible? I am currently passing parameters to the report and I am able to generate the report. however I need to build the SQL statement withing VB.net and the pass it to the report and have the report generate the results based on that SQL Query.

thanks

 Dim cr As Object

     cr = New MyCrystalReport
     cr.Database.Dispose()
     cr.DataSourceConnections.Clear()

            Dim dA As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sql, Con)
            dA.Fill(dT)

            cr.SetDataSource(dT)
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cr

Note: The fields in your report template need to be the same name and data type as the sql you are sending although if the sql results in fileds with names that dony match the report you can always change the name of the DataSet columns in code so they match
