Of course you can.
What i have done is that i installed the ODBC driver for informix and start cystal report in PC and create a new report by selecting the SQL/ODBC in the Report Type and Data Type in custom option. Select the DSN that has been set up earlier in the Server Log prompt. Select the tables that you will use in the report and you have connected to the informix. And now you can do whatever formating on the report design view.  That's simple. Hope this help.

Hi Jen2,

Also you can achive it through Informix CLI2.5 installation in your pc. From CLI2.5, you select ODBC Administrator and specify some parameters like Database name, Service Name , protocal type, user name and passwd etc., as per informix configuration file.

Best of Luck
