Yes, I have done this in the past without any problems. It takes a lot of experimenting with the printer to line things up right. As long as the data is already in a database, you can do this.

Do you have more specific challenges you are experiencing?

Agree.

One thing I have done is scanned the form in and set it as a background on the page.

That makes it easier to set the fields on the form

To set it as the background
1.  Scan it
2.  Insert it in the report header as an image
3.  Set the report header to UNDERLAY FOLLOWING SECTIONS

Yes it would print but you could save a copy after removing it from the report header.
Simply use it to place fields.

You could also as I have done, recreate the form in Crystal and eliminate all alignment problems.  A new batch of forms may be just enough different that you are continuously having to update the report to match minor changes in the form.
