Newbie Questions

Postby chimp(Legacy Member) on Mon Nov 07, 2005 9:57 am

I am very new to this whole Crystal Reports thing and have a few basic questions that i could do with being answered please....

1) Security: can i prevent a user from entering the design view, i have just looked at report that someone has generated and i was able to enter the design view and delete various data.... i wobviously want to sto this happening with my reports...

2) Forms:Can i make a front form for my reports? example if i have 10 reports, can i create a menu system, to open each from a form? if i can't do this within cystal, can i open the reports via another program in a menu?

3) Distribution: Does the user have to have Crystal reports installed on their system to view each report? or can i generate a number of reports store them in a central folder and allow each to run the report of their choice....

Ideally i would like to produce a menu that the user would choose the report they wish to run and it then generates.....

Please Advise

Crystal Reports is a report creation tool. I do not think you can create an interactive form. You can distribute the crystal reports run time in conjunction with your application as long as you have a developer license.
