I have added a crystal report to a form. But all it does is display and then go away all in 1 or 2 seconds
I need to allow an user to review the report.
I have visual studio 2008
sql 2005
Crystal reports   ver 11


Here is the code I have so far.
code
Private Sub btnCrystalReport_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnCrystalReport.Click
        Dim cryRpt As New ReportDocument
           cryRpt.Load("C:\johnm_work\CentreTrak2008\CrystalReport1.rpt")
        CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cryRpt
           CrystalReportViewer1.Refresh()
/code

Thanks that did work. Just one follow up question.
Do you have the code of a project that uses it or can you give me some suggestions on how to make the report stand out better?  
I added a file with the view of the form. The report looks  pretty sad.
What I show is only a dummy report. Can i put it on its own form and make it look more like microsoft word docuemnt? larger? i give you the points  I  was only wanting  some suggestions

You can put the report viewer in its own form.  It can be sized to fill the screen,
