Can Crystal Reports output to MS Word?

Can Crystal Reports output to MS Word?

Question:
The Crystal Reports help file contains “Pro-only Topics.” Can I use these Pro features with the Crystal Reports engine I recieved with OPO? If so, where can I find an example of outputting a Word document? I am developing a work flow system for a gov. agency and would love to output and save to an Oracle database a Word Doc.

Answer:
I believe the OPO Crystal Reports OCX simply calls Crystal, so you shouldbe able to use the ‘Pro’ features.

I am not an expert on the functionality of Crystal Reports, but your bestbet might be to output the report as HTML and read it with Word.
