how can I chain 2 crystal reports together?  I have 2 separate reports and would like for both of them to be displayed in the report viewer, one after the other.

    You can export the reports to PDF files , merge them in one file and preview it. I guess you are asking as a developer so I am not going to recommend tools to do this.
    Another option is to create one report , which will be used as a container and to add the 2 reports as subreports. This will work just in case your existing reports does not use subreports. A variation of this case is to use the first report as a  container for the second one.

    Agree with vasto.  There is one other option which would be to add an object to the report footer of the first report and hyperlink it to the other report.

    I inserted one as a subreport into the header of the other report.
