Access lets you create a report through crystal, but is there any way to run the report from access 2003 or stand alone without crystal report program.

Access doesn't allow you create Crystal Reports unless you have Crystal installed on the system.  If it does then you are violating the Crystal EULA.

Could you use one of the many Crystal Reports viewers?

If it really is a Crystal Report then yes but if Access is allowing them to build Crystal Reports there must be a viewing capability available or it can be added relatively easily.

You can call the Crystal viewer from Access VBA.
