Crystal reports - auto refresh?


I'm an oracle dba working on an SQL 2005 DB and am trying to create a self refreshing report. I know this can be done in SQL reporting services but requires VB code to do - i just dont have the time to learn VB to do this.

As i am learning crystal reports anyway, as most of our reporting is done through Crystal XI, i was hoping there was a nice easy way to get Crystal to suto update the report data.

Basically what i have done is create a stats report based on live data in the SQL DB. I am outputting this report to multiple TV screens around a call center so people c an see how well (or badly) they are doing today with regards their call stats. Obviously i dont want to have someone clicking refresh every few seconds to update the screens so i want the report to do this automatically. I am not using Crystal web services just either cview or Crystal XI to show the report.

Hope someone can tell me there is an easy way!
