To begin with something simple, I will create a report from the Customers table of the SQL Server Northwind database and view it in a Windows Forms application. I'll start by creating a new application for Windows in Visual Studio .NET. (I use Visual Basic, but the concepts are portable to all .NET languages.) Once the application is created, right-click the project name in the Solution Explorer, select Add Add New Item from the context menus. Then in the Add New Item dialog box, select Crystal Report from the Templates list, name the report CustomersBasic.rpt, and click Open (see Figure 1).Figure 1 Creating a Simple Report When the Crystal Report Gallery dialog opens, you can accept the default settings (Using the Report Expert and Standard), and click OK. When the Report Expert opens, drill down on the OLE DB (ADO) branch of the treeview control in the Data tab. When the OLE DB (ADO) dialog opens, select the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server, specify the server and login information for your SQL Server, select the Northwind database, then click Finish. Back in the Standard Report Expert, drill down through the Northwind node in the treeview to the Tables node, then double-click the Customers node. In the Fields tab, click the Add All button to add all the fields from the customers table to the report. Next, make sure you assign the report a title and style in the Style tab and click the Finish button. The Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET designer is now activated and your report is displayed. Notice that the Field Explorer window now appears and is docked to the Toolbox and Server Explorer windows. Within the Toolbox, a Crystal Reports palette is available. Also, a Crystal Reports toolbar now appears at the top left of the Visual Studio .NET toolbar area. I will use this report in various ways as I go through each sample in the article. My first sample involves simply displaying this report, unmodified, in a window. This is easy. Just drop a CrystalReportViewer from the Windows Forms palette of the Toolbox onto the designer for the default form in the project, set its name property to cvwMain, its Dock property to Fill, its ReportSource property to my report (using the Browse option), and then run the application. If I designed the report using a database log in with a blank password, the report will display immediately; otherwise, I am required to log in before displaying. I'll show you how to write code shortly that automates this log in, so that already authenticated users do not have to log in a second time just to run reports.

To sum up: Crystal Report's ReportClass makes strongly typed reports possible; the ICachedReports interface makes it possible to create cached instances of ReportClass; and ReportServiceBase effectively creates a Web Services interface for strongly typed reports, which is compatible with the ICachedReports interface through the latter's webService property. One more thing. Remember the ServerFileReport component that I created by dragging and dropping from the Server Explorer? It uses Web Services technology as well. If you return to the Windows Form project, you'll notice that sfrCustomersBasic has a WebServiceURL property, which points to a generic .asmx file. The URL looks something like localhost/crystalreportwebformviewer/ ServerFileReportService.asmx. Although this URL is generic, sfrCustomersBasic's ReportPathProperty, pointing to \MSDN\ CustomersBasic.rpt, specifies the relative location and name of the report I actually want to run. Now it may seem odd that the ServerFileReport component requires you to run the report via an HTTP/SOAP connection to your local machine, but that is in fact what it's doing. However, this means you could easily right-click on the Servers node in the Server Explorer, choose Add Server, connect to any other server on your LAN/WAN, and run Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET reports that exist on that remote machine. This makes it very easy to deploy reports throughout the enterprise: simply install Visual Studio .NET on a server, copy rpt files to the appropriate folder, and they become immediately available throughout the organization (via SOAP) without requiring any special coding. Even the relatively simple process of right-clicking a report in an ASP.NET project and selecting "Publish as Web Service" is not necessary; all you have to do is copy the file to the correct folder. The disadvantage of using drag and drop in Server Explorer is that only objects on servers that reside in the developer's own LAN/WAN, not those behind a firewall, can be browsed. But there's a workaround: as long as the URL and ReportPath of a given report are known, and the server (firewalled or not) is connected to the Internet, you can create a new instance of CrystalDecisions.ReportSource.ServerFileReport and set these properties on it in code. This easy-to-use SOAP interface is so convenient and straightforward that Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET uses it as a wrapper of sorts for its earlier Crystal Enterprise product. The Crystal Enterprise node under Crystal Services in the Server Explorer can be used to browse reports residing on any Crystal Enterprise server on the LAN/WAN and use them as valid ReportSources for a CrystalReportViewer control, again using SOAP. Now the Crystal Enterprise reports are available to any Internet-connected Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET developers armed with the correct URL and object ID.

This web portal provides a cost-effective, simple and secure way to distribute and schedule Crystal Reports online. You can download the files to make a DVD, or save them to a USB drive or network to be installed on another computer. Access to the SAP Crystal Server, SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise, or Edge deployment is required for analytics in production. SAP Crystal Reports 2016 is the standard for reporting and allows you to create dynamic reports that are richly formatted.

Consider the example where an XLS spreadsheet or an MDB database is referenced by your report. If those are values are hard coded paths inside your report (e.g. C:\Path\To\\Docs\Jet.mdb), then that path must be available, as referenced, or you will get a connection error or you could get a username and password prompt.ODBC as Eloquent SolutionODBC is a good portable solution. In this case, data sources are referenced by Data Source Name (DSN). So long as a working 32-bit (x86) database driver exist on the system, with the DSN referenced by the report, all will work well.
