you meant SQLquery just for SQLserver usage ? if then how the alternative ways work that you talking about ?
don't know if it's only MS SQL server, probably not, more than likely it will work with another SQL server, Oracle or some other.

If you know how to create an Access query, you can do several things:  create the query to show all of the critical fields and attach Crystal to that query, and then pass a filter to crystal using the filter property like I showed you in the other question (which is probably your best route, since it's simplest)

Or create a temporary table in Access, create two action queries (one to delete all records in the table, and the other to populate the table with your desired data by passing a parameter to it) and linking crystal to that temporary table.  This method is more involved and has more steps, but is quicker to generate the report and depends on what, exacltly you are doing, how many stages the data has to go through, and (of course) how many records you are dealing with.

If you aren't talking 1000's of records, or your data doesn't have to be staged, or transformed, then I would recommend the first method.

P.S.  How do you pronounce "qazwsxedc"?  Thought mine was bad <g>.
