    Posted: 28 May 2008 at 9:26am
Hi all.   Using Crystal 9.0.  I created a report I want to give to the sales people.  They need to be able to run it whenever they want.  They most likely don't have Crystal Reports installed on their machine.  Isn't there a way to distribute the report in a .EXE form so they can just click a shortcut on their desktop to run the report? 
 
If so, how will it know where to find the data files?
 
Thanks in advance for the help.

There used to be a way to distribute a report as an EXE, but that went away with version 9.
 
You can either write your own application for the users to run or you can get a third-party tool that will allow your users to run the report.  A good list of what's available is at www.kenhamady.com\bookmarks.html.
