Default Exporting Crystal Reports to PDF using ASP.NET

Hi there,

I have created a crystal report in Visual Studio 2005 which retrieves it's information from an SQL Server 2000 Table. VS has automatically generated the following ASP.NET page to display the report for me:

<%@ Page Language="VB" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="CostDetailsReport.aspx.vb" Inherits="_Default" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="CR" Namespace="CrystalDecisions.Web" Assembly="CrystalDecisions.Web, Version=10.2.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/DTD/xhtml11.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Cost Details</title>

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <CR:CrystalReportViewer ID="CrystalReportViewer1" Runat="server" AutoDataBind="True"
            Height="947px" ReportSourceID="CrystalReportSource1" Width="845px" />
        <CR:CrystalReportSource ID="CrystalReportSource1" runat="server">
            <Report FileName="CostDetailsReport.rpt">




Here's the issue:

Instead of loading and displaying the report inside the Crystal Report Viewer of a browser window, I would like to export it straight into a PDF document and display that instead. I have seen a few code examples but I am not particularly familier with ASP.NET so I don't know how to implement them inside the page. Could anyone suggest a way of doing this? Or maybe even some code?

Thanks in advance for any help! =S
