We have web pages that use a Crystal reports ver 8 web module to view configurable reports of the data we have in MYSQL database. We have changed the PC (that acts as our web server) to WIn 7 and this version of Crystal will not work. We have spent hours trying to get hold of someone in Crystals support who in th eend suggested we talk to a local re-seller and their solution is to buy the latest version of Crystal that has a web module for $4000 which is simply crazy! I know many people have developed their own crystal report viewers and wanted to know how I could do this - or even better if someone knows where I could buy such a module that would allow me to run the reports through the web pages as previous

thanks in advance
