Now I suppose they will need 3 options: report behavior 80, foxypreviewer, report sculptor (with drill down, foxypreviewer, and sstoexcel2).

Hello, you shouldn't need to include rspro.vcx in your project. All you need is reportsculptor.vcx. If you are using a customized form for the preview, you will also need to include rsprev.vcx.
