The crystal report is the actual report file where you design the look of your report and can connect it to a database. The Crystal Report Viewer is a control that can be placed on a web form to display your report. The viewer takes care of things like
navigating from page to page, it give you the option the export the report to pdf or word. There is also the Microsoft Report Viewer which doesn't work with a Crystal Report. Your question only mentions "report viewer", make sure you use the Crystal Report
Viewer control if you are creating a crystal report.
