Believe it or not, the Crystal Reports support site offers quite a bit of information.  Their main site can be found at http://support.crystaldecisions.com.  You can get technical briefs on different aspects of Crystal, like the automation server, at http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/.  Some of the briefs cost a few dollars but are well worth the money.  If all else fails, Crystal offers phone support to registered users.  In North America you can call (604) 669-8379.  If you decide to call, make sure you have at least 45 minutes to wait on hold if you call during the day.  They are open 11 am - 8 pm EDT if you do not have priority support.  I've found that the wait times are shorter if I call after 6:45 EDT.  As a side note, v8.5 gives you much more control over reports at runtime than any previous version.  Good luck!
