Trudye,
Do you already call from a .Net application? Or do you know the code to call from an .net application?
If so, you only need to copy paste to inside a script task in SSIS.
Regards!

No I don't code .NET. Is that the only way to call Crystal reports from an SSIS pkg?

There are quite a few Crystal Viewers out there, one I use is EasyStreet and has a command line interface (not that I have ussed that bit) : http://www.easystreetsoftware.net/Products/EasyView_Main.php and groff automation has a delivery option for command line : http://homepages.udayton.edu/~groffkep/

for a few options, including code sample, have a look at : http://www.kenhamady.com/bookmarks.html

OK, the reason for the above is you simply create a processtask setp and launch your Crystal Report from the command line.
