    I found the answer to your question via the Business Objects website. See the link below and refer to page 4 of the PDF. The feature you desire is listed under the Report Integration heading and is referred to as "Report creation and modification SDKs

    (Java, .NET and COM)".

    The feature is available with Crystal Reports XI Developer and Crystal Reports XI Server. You'll need to use the SDKs.

    I don't think Crystal report has any such option. You'll have to provide UI where the user can key in the required input and your code can control the displayed content.

    Alternative could be that they have the Crystal report application and design reports as and when needed.
