crystal report's datasource

When I designed a crystal report report, I have to pick which table contains the datafields that I want on the report.  If I have a recordset with the same datafields that was returned from an Access Query, how can I pass that along to Crystal Report without it using a default style for printing.  If I pass a recordset's data to Crystal, it prints, but not with the formating and labels that I put in place.  can somebody help me with it?

You have 2 options:

1.)  Use Crystal Query and recreate your query and use the datafields off of that.  Select New Report and then Standard Report.  Choose to use Crystal Query and it will come up with a query tool like MS Query.  When you create the query, send it to Crystal using the Send to Crystal command and whammo!!! you're in business.  Change any labels and such on the report.

2.)  If you are running the report from an application where you can code an Insert statement then create a temporary table in your database.  You can have the table there permanently or create it before you run the report using the CREATE TABLE statement.  Once the table is created, create an INSERT INTO tablename SELECT .... FROM... WHERE.  Then in Crystal, create a report that points to the temporary table that holds the information you just inserted.  Go to Database...Set Location to do this.  Hope this helped.

If I am totally on the wrong track then send a comment back being a bit more specific about the problem.
