I want to make a form, that is partially filled out from a database connection and the rest the user fills out.  Then he is able to print it.  Right now, I use crystal reports, shove all the data into a dataset build the form and then the user has it in the viewer, but in order to change it they have to close the viewer, make corrections and redo it.  I also use the printform from the powerpacks, with limited positive outcomes, it seems alot depends on the users screen res.  There has to be an easier way.  I want a a form that ask for a number, then populates certain fields, the user is able to type in any of the boxes and then print and wysiwyg.  Any ideas?

The process I would implement:
1) User opens a standard Windows form, with populated data and some empty fields.
2) User completes the Form and clicks Submit or Print button
3) Submit process would then format the data and present the Crystal report viewer with results

So it would seem problematic to start with a CR report when you are really not ready to print the form yet.
