Default Creating Reports in Standard CR and Use in .NET?

I am considering using the embedded version of Crystal Reports in Visual Studio 2005 to develop and view report data in a C# windows application. I'd like to create a stock set of reports for the end users however I want to enable them to modify and create their own reports.

Can you create/modify reports using the standard(preferably) or any other version of Crystal Reports and view them with the VS.NET embedded viewer?(as long as they're based on a database, not datasets)

Would it still be possibly to pass parameters to the report?

Many thanks for any assistance I receive.

Yup, that's exactly what I do. I use the CRD to produce my reports and subreports, then just call 'em with fairly generic C# code in an aspx page. You can add Parameter Fields to your reports and even pass 'em on to subreports. I imagine you could do it the same way with a desktop app. Here's a posting where I provide somebody with code to do just this in an aspx page:
