I have created a report in crystal reports XI. The report contains 8 subreports. The main report is not connected to a datasource, but the 8 subreports are each connected to different data sources. I need to be able to add this report to my .net web site. I have added a crystal report viewer to my aspx page and i can see my report in design, but when i go to view my web page i get nothing except a blank screen.  I attached my html code.
<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="TentativeBudget.aspx.vb" Inherits="TentativeBudget" %>
 
<%@ Register Assembly="CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304"
    Namespace="CrystalDecisions.Web" TagPrefix="CR" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms, Version=8.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a"
    Namespace="Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms" TagPrefix="rsweb" %>

<head runat="server">

</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <CR:CrystalReportViewer id="CrystalReportViewer1" runat="server" DisplayGroupTree="False" 
            ReportSourceID="CrystalReportSource2" Width="893px" DisplayToolbar="False" Height="757px" />
        <CR:CrystalReportSource ID="CrystalReportSource2" runat="server">
            <Report FileName="\\Scg-misdev\wwwroot\ApplicationReports\content\Depts\Budget\Tentative\BudgetTentative.rpt">
            </Report>
        </CR:CrystalReportSource>
 
</div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

Is the data source in a different place for the web page than for your development environment?

You need to either change the data source through Crystal or through your web page.  It is trying to connect to the original data source.

I am not sure how to do it in HTML.

Here is a tutorial on VS2005 Crystal
I believe the part you need is on about page 131.  If not then check the table of contents.

ok so i went thru adding a crystal report to my web form step by step. I even went thru the section with subreports (page 141) and i am getting the following error: Error in File C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\TentativeBudget {ECE49B1E-91F5-452B-B35D-5C4D82BEE7F1}.rpt:
Access to report file denied. Another program may be using it.

It stops at line 13 to load the report:

Line 11:         TentativeBudgetReport = New ReportDocument()
Line 12:         Dim reportPath As String = Server.MapPath("TentativeBudget.rpt")
Line 13:         TentativeBudgetReport.Load(reportPath)
Line 14:         Dim myConnectionInfo As ConnectionInfo = New ConnectionInfo()
Line 15:         myConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = "SC_Budget"

I found my solution in the VS2005 Walkthroughs.pdf. Not on page 131 but starting around page 9.
