Yes there are many viewers and scheduling tools available.

Ken Hamady has avery good list and he reviews the ones listed once a year.  SOme are inexpensive and others are a bit pricey.  If you have programming skills it is not too difficult to create a basic report viewing program.

Thanks, got it to work.  I do have one more question.  Is there software available that will allow Crystal to run without the full version of the software.  I have designed the report, and I do not want to give the person running it the ability to make any changes.  They will only need the ability to select parameters, save and/or print.
