    Let users edit a Crystal Report at runtime.

    Hi.

    Is there a way that I can let users edit a Crystal Report at runtime (when they open the report with the report viewer when running the application). Or the report in report viewer is read - only?

    I'm trying to add a text box that can be editable by clicking on it.

    Thanks in advance.

    You could solve using another approach

    1 Modify your app and ask for the data you want to change and then pass to the report
    2 Insert a Parameter field in the report so the user can type something before it is displayed

    Hey jggtz, the parameter idea is great!! Thanks a lot.

    Only to confirm, doesn't crystal report have any kind of text box that can be editable in runtime by clicking on it?

    Anyway, the parameter suits me well. Thanks again!
