 CR 8.5 Simply Display a report

I am using the activeX control for CR 8.5. All our reports are created using
a DSN connection for the structure, but are run through the application by
passing an ADO recordset with something like:
crpReport.Database.SetDataSource rs

I want to allow users to create their own reports but be able to display
them through my application. Basically what I want is, given a path to the
.rpt file, to display the result of 'Previewing' a report in the Crystal
environment. I don't need to worry about formulas, filtering, etc... just
want to display it. Is there a simple way to do this? I know how to look
through the tables collection and make a recordset using SELECT * FROM
{tableName}, but I think this will only work for reports created how we
create them, and definitely only for reports accessing just our
application's database.

Any thoughts?
