I see that you have CR in your topics. You could create a dataset completely in code (no db required) and push it to your report. check http://emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2006/09/Feeding-Crystal-Reports-from-your-application.aspx

I remember in Visual Basic 6 you could create a data report without the data environment I was thinking along the same lines as that

Are you trying to create a report that basically has boilerplate and doesn't need data from a database?

Yes doesn't have to be a fancy report just basically like a current invoice just displays everything on that form  with  a logo on it

have you read my article? It is very easy to push a dataset (and I am not referring to the UI one) to a report.

So you need the report to have data (a datasource) but you don't need it to use the database directly to get the data.

In that case the method emoreau provides in his article is what you want.

The application creates a dataset and pushes the data to the report.
