Hi,

I created a crystal report with vs2005 ... the report is using a excel file as data input (using DAO).Now i need to deploy to the server.

When i do the report, i give the full path of excel file in my local machine (path like: C:\tommyproject\project1\test.xls). Can i set it as relative path, so i can deploy easier in the future? and i think it is a better practice for development.

Please advise,
Tommy
