Crystal Reports 8.0 has the best functionality, but you also need the Notes SQL/ODBC driver for your server.

Here's the article about the requirements and general functionality from DominoPower:

http://www.dominopower.com/issues/issue200006/crystal0600001.html

You can download Notes SQL/ODBC Drivers by going to the download page:

http://www.lotus.com/home.nsf/welcome/downloads,
then select Notes SQL 3.0 ODBC Driver for Domino/Notes
Select Platform, Language, etc.  There are also some samples you can download.  the version 3.0 is only for NT english, so you might need to select an earlier version.

Here's the article on how to export Notes Databases to Crystal Reports.. There are many in the Seagate Support Documents, so you might want to do a search to see the rest: Search on Lotus Notes on the Support Page:

hope this helps..
