View data saved within the rpt file using the “Save Data with Report” option in Crystal Reports
View current data from the database in Crystal Reports that use only one database connection such as a single ODBC DSN, single SQL Server, single Oracle server, or single Access database.
View current data from the database in Crystal Reports that use multiple database connections—including different ODBC connections or different database types such as SQL Server, Oracle, and/or Access within the same report.
Use a different database connection -- such as a different ODBC DSN, different Oracle server, or different Access database -- for web viewing than was used to design the Crystal Report.
This can be useful when the same report is used with different instances of a database or when using separate development, QA, and production databases.
Logs in to the database with a predetermined username and password that you provide, usually the same database user account used to design the Crystal Report or a database user account with limited rights created specifically for report viewing.
Logs in to the database with the username and password provided by the user during web server authentication, for implementations where each user has a separate database account.
