Default SQL, ASP and Crystal Reports

I have a report in Crystal that I need to let users view/print via the web. The report is based on a view in SQL that will remain constant. However, I need the report to be populated with a subset of that view based on user information. I've read the technical articles on Crystal's website about creating a TTX file...that's fine, but I don't need to create a new report...I want to use the one I've already created. I can generate a sql query string with the user information through asp. But I can't figure out how to get it to the report. I'm using the following code to access the viewer. I'm not (and prefer not to have to) access the RDC. My users don't need to be able to create a report...just view the report we've created populated with their subset of the data. Thanks!

Hi

Have you looked at the ASPXMPS8 and ASPXMPS85 samples on the Crystal website.

I picked up quite a bit from them

I use the session variables in the activex viewer like so.

Set session("oApp") = Server.CreateObject("CrystalRuntime.Application")
Set session("oRpt") = session("oApp").OpenReport(reportname, 1)
Session("oRpt").RecordSelectionFormula = strFilter

Set strFilter to a valid SQL select.

Hope that helps
