Depending on what the updates to the database are the answer is yes. If you are
changing the structure of the database, then Crystal has the option to Verify on
Every Print under the Database menu. When this option is saved in the report,
the report will verify the structure of the database and make any changes to the
report as needed each time the report runs.
If you are using Crystal 8 then you can do this through code if you are using
the Print Engine API or the RDC.
