Can anyone assist me with scheduling a automated task that would run and save the output of  crystal report in a PDF document and save to a particular folder?

You cannot automate Crystal itself.

You need to use a program like Crystal Enterprise or Crystal Reports Server.  You could also write your own program that could be scheduled through Windows.

There are other 3rd-party tools available to do what you want.
