Compiling Reports, Running Reports


I have determined how I want my report to look, and I have the formatting of my report down.  My question is, how do I save or compile the format?  I would like to send the report a query which contains different data values, but I would like to have that data formatted in the way that I have saved in Crystal Reports.  Is there an .exe file that needs to be created in Crystal or something?  Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks


RE: Compiling Reports, Running Reports

You can compile a report, but not the format.
You can put parameters into the report to have it prompt for data, or you can launch it from VB and pass the data from a recordset.  You can compile reports (create an EXE) but read the FAQ on this in the general forum.
