Is there any one who tried CR with D2005?
Is it a good solution for reporting?

I've preliminarily done some Crystal 8 with D2005. The VCL was
trivial to convert. I haven't tried 9 or 10 yet, haven't had time
to set up a clean VM for testing.

Is this related to Crystal Reports?

For Crystal Reports 7, 8, and 8.5, using the Win32 VCL component,
you set up a query component using IBObjects, Interbase Express, or
whatever your TDataset compatible database access method of choice
is, and hand that off to Crystal.

I haven't tried *at all* to get the .NET stuff to work, either
WinForms, ASP.NET, or ECO.

If you're interested in Win32 apps, and you're using Crystal 7-8.5,
the help file (UCrpeDS.hlp, specifically), should provide enough
examples. Essentially, for every table in your report, you
associate a CrpeDS component to the Delphi TDataset, then tell the
report to use those instead of a direct database connection. FWIW,
I get much better performance if I do this than allowing Crystal to
go directly to the database, especially if I massage the data into
a single TQuery/TADOQuery/TOracleDataSet.

I have not done any .NET stuff, or Crystal newer than 8.5 so I
can't really help you if you're stuck on ECO.

I can not find the file that you had mentioned.I also can not find the
component that you have mentioned.
Crystal report components does not appear for Win 32 projects.It only
appears for .net projects.
Only two components appear viz reportViewer & reportdocument.There is also a
crystalreport project in the projectgroup.
I tried to find out from the online help how to connect to Interbase.How
ever i could not do it

The only portion of Crystal included with Delphi 2005 is the .NET
part, originally from C# Builder. I'm afraid I just can't offer
help with the .NET stuff.
