How do I save a Report to File for later viewing?

How do I save a Report to File for later viewing?

How do I save a Report to File for later viewing?

(OP)
I'm designing a program in VB and intend to utilize Crystal Reports. I have Version 8.0 Developers Edition, but have not had the time to look over it yet, I've been busy with VB. I am at a point however where I need to start considering how to save the data on the report so it can be called and viewed or printed at a later date.

Would this be better accomplished saving the data to a database and calling it back to a Report or saving the Crystal Report to file(if it is possible).

I guess the main question I have is can the data, once it's on a report, be saved to file and called up again by some type of reference #???

Every day above ground is a GOOD DAY!!!

You can save the data with the report.  Hit the File drop down and select that option.  You can also set it up in the options section.
