We wanted to have all the reports run from within the Emerald system. I am
unclear as to whether or not I can prompt a user for variables from within
the Emerald system.

Also, the only way I have been able to figure out a way to have a user pass
a variable with Crystal Reports is to use the ActiveX control within a VB
form. Is there another way?

Crystal Reports intself has the ability for you to define parameters and
query the user for them when the report is run. Therefore nothing is
on the Emerald side for this.
