I believe you can go to edit or view (not at my crystal pc right now) and select "show sql query" there you can manually edit it.

Hi pak_slm,

In addition to what AConover said above, in any versions of crystal reports, you can only edit the FROM, WHERE and ORDER BY parts of the query if required and not the SELECT part.
