Calling Crystal Reports From ASP

By bgibilaro ·
I am working on an intranet application for my organization. Part of it involves very detailed reporting. For this task, we have purchased Crystal Reports 8.5 (Standard Edition) We also have 8.0 on hand.

I need to know how to start with a form on my ASP page, take the user submitted sort parameters, pass it to my crystal reports, and then get the report to display.

Getting the report to display is not so much a problem, but I am having a bear of a time passing parameters from my ASP to Crystal Reports, and of course I have not found any decent books that cover integrating ASP and Crystal Reports.

Any help on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

Crystal Reports is fully integrated into Visual Studio .NET; which makes using ASP.Net and Crystal Reports together very easy. See this link for details:

This may not help your particular situation, but then again it may be relevant.

Good Luck

Unfortunately, the link provide was invalid. Either way, I am using plain old vanilla ASP as opposed to ASP.NET. However, thank you for the suggestion. I appreciate the help.

You can make an server side ActiveX that will process data to and from Crystal Reports and then in ASP you will read from it and display on page.
