Note: Crystal Reports versions 6 through 8 are no longer supported. The following help topic has been left in place as a courtesy for those that are still working with these unsupported versions.
To create a new report that uses the Advantage Crystal Reports driver:
|1.||Create a new report as you normally would with Crystal.|
|2.||When prompted to select the data you will be reporting on, choose the 'Database' button.|
|3.||Expand the 'More Data Sources' tree item. All Advantage alias entries will be shown in the list in the format:|
'Advantage SQL - AliasName'
|1.||If you have never configured an Advantage alias, see Defining a Database Alias for use with Crystal Reports for a description and example ads.ini file. Select the desired Advantage entry in the list and continue developing the report. This is the only Advantage-specific selection you will have to make.|
