Default Crystal reports design view mode

Would you mind let me know how to prevent the regular users from accessing the design view of my Crystal Reports?

Your help is appreciated

Send a message via Yahoo to blacklisthunter03

Option no. 1
Create a program in VB6 or VB.NET
That will call your created crystal report.
Option no. 2

I agree that calling a report from VB or C# or other prgramming language is a good approach. But a quick solution is if you go under "File" "Report Options" you can click on "ReadOnly". This will prevent any changes in design view. The problem is that if you have a smart user, they can probably go in and uncheck the ReadOnly box. Good luck!!
