Add crystal reports to website application and deploy on company server.

I am creating an website application that displays the tables from a sql database. I would like the ability to print reports based on my selection of records.

Once i get this working i would like to put the site on the company's server and have the employees access it like a website.

So the question is what would i need to put on the server if anything for the reports to run the same as if it were on my desktop when i was developing it? They would only need to view and print the report.

YOu need to install the Crystal runtimes on the server.

What version of Crystal?
How are you building the website?

Here is a tutorial on using Crystal with VS2005.  Starting on page 434 they have information on building install packages for various scenarios

Crystal Reports X, but if easier I can use the reports version that comes with VS2008

Either version will require the same steps just different runtimes.

The tutoril should be a good starting point
