Would you please help me to find a way that I can open an external crystal report in my application without creating a new report. I actually wanted the application to export the report to a PDF which I know the methods to do it. What I am searching for is the way to open the external report which was built in crystal report 9.0. I had searched so many tutorials where I found only the methods to create a new report in my application and then exporting the same. But none of it telling any way to open an external report. So kinldy help me with some solutions to solve it out. I am using VB.net and the developement tool is Visual Studio 2003.
