Crystal Reports Exported to Excel

I have the following code that spits out a Crystal Report in PDF format on the user's computer.  I need it to open up in xCel.  How can I do that?  

ReportLoader reportLoader = new ReportLoader("ReportName.rpt", ReportData);
reportLoader.ExportToHTTPResponse(HttpContext.Current.Response, true);

I need to get the ReportName.rpt to disk and then opened up in xCel, or just opened up in xcel.

Thanks

What version of Crystal?

Is ReportLoader a class you built or is it something provided with Crystal?

You can write an application that exports the report to Excel.
I think these links can be used as the basis for you app
