Runtime creation of crystal reports and fields, with all report sections

Hi! I'm a novice when it comes to crystal reports. I want to pass a customised query from a windows form (which might contain a statement like "SELECT * FROM " & tablecombo.text & " where (name = ' " & txtName.text & " ')" which could result in the following:

SELECT * FROM Day1 WHERE (name = John)
I want the report to be generated at runtime. Is that possible? If so, please show me how.

If you mean to actually create a report dynamically at runtime, it may be possible in Crystal 9 and up, but not in Crystal .net.  If you mean to dynamically change the datasource of your report at runtime, this is possible.  Check out this link which should have some samples that accomplish this for you.  I have an article on populating datasets to crystal .net <a href=>here</a> that might be interesting also.

ericlandes, thanks for your quick reply! I am really grateful for your concern. Wow, that means I can't dynamically generate data reports using!! 

So then, what are the reportdocument object and field objects doing there? Its really weird! I guess crystal made a fundamental mistake there! Any way, I've decided to use a third party tool to generate my reports now. I guess if you download the resource kit, you get a free edition to ComponentOne, which includes Reporting for .net. These guys REALLY handle the issue of "AUTOMATION" to its true context. I have been able to create a report from scratch, at runtime, all through code. You can also check it out. Its so easy. There's even a whole tutorial on creating report definitions through code. But I'm not so sure about their licences. If you find anything, please let me know.
In your debt,

Are there other reporting tools other than reporting services and crystal reports
Has anyone had any experience with any reporting tools other than Reporting services and Crystal reports? If so, is there one that you would strongly recommend? Or, are these two the top choice on the market for report generation from .NET? I have heard some moaning and groaning about reporting services. Specifically in regards to the amount of time needed to design a report. Crystal reports seems kind of difficult to me, as I don't have any training with it. Basically I am looking for a reporting tool that is easy to use, and can be used from .NET....

Will Reports developed with the embeded Crystal Reports in VS 2005 run in a Crystal Reports XI environment? Thanks....

Reporting (Crystal Reports vs. Custom .NET)
Ok, so I have to confess, I have never tried Crystal Reports. I just recently started working for a marketing company now and reporting is VERY important to them.  I am currently migrating a lot of the applications they use from VB5 and VB6 to web based .NET 3.5 apps.   The whole company is running off ACCESS databases if you can believe that.  They sometimes have up to a few hundred agents taking sales on incoming calls and chat sessions and they are all getting streamed to FLAT file records (completely un-normalized database).  I am in the process of developing a c...
