Include Web Page in a Crystal Report

I have been given the task of modifying a Crystal Report.  What I need to do is create a section that points to a web page pulling the page into the report.  It can not just be a link that a user clicks on... it must actually pull the page into the crystal report so that when the user prints the report, the web page is included in the printout.  Could someone instruct me on this?  I am using version 10 of Crystal Reports.

I don't think it is possible.

Have you seen it done?


I have not seen it done before so I have no idea if it's possible.  My boss just wanted it done.  I don't think he knows if it's possible either though.  I'm a programmer so he gave me the task of finding out.

I can't prove it but I don't think it is possible since Crystal uses a data source for the report.

Darn it... I think you're right.  Oh well.  I wonder why no one ever thought of adding that feature to the application.  It would be quite handy.

Looks like you got an easy 500  ;-)  Thanks for the quick response man.  Even though it wasn't what I wanted to hear you still deserve every point I put up for the question.  :-)
