It's not clear which part of "getting started" you're asking for help with.  Have you used Crystal Reports interactively yet?  If not, that's a good place to start to know what the program is capable of.  If you're looking for a demo program, go to:

There is both online and download information available.

I have the code to open Crystal report/subreports from VB5 using wrapped functions and API functions.
