I am running a vb program that from a view will produce a list of records. I want these records displayed ont a Crystal Report.

How is this done as my crystal report will not be connected to anything?

Here is an example of a query I want the data onto a crystal report

adoCmd.Connection = adoConnection
adoCmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
adoCmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM viewOfNames where department = "Accounts""
adoRdr = adoCmd.ExecuteReader()
While adoRdr.Read()
    sTest = adoRdr(Surname)
    sTest2 = adoRdr(Forename)
    sTest3 = adoRdr(Department)
End While

The connection is where the view is. I could just use the view but I will be doing all sorts of data manipulation before putting the final results onto crystal reports.

If I understood the question correctly, you can store the result in a datatable, make the necessary modifications and then use the datatable as a data source for Crystal.

For example, have a look at:
- Creating Crystal Reports using C# with Datasets[^]
- Crystal Report with DataSet and DataTable using C#[^]
- Crystal Reports Without Database[^]
