Assuming you have an ODBC connection to TopSpeed, you will have to create something which looks like a single table.  Crystal Reports will not be able to combine Monday..Friday in one report.  

You could create a sub-report for each day of the week and put all the sub-reports into one report, but totals would be difficult.

Have you looked on the Crystal website in their downloads area or the knowledge base?

www.crystaldecisions.com

I haven't noticed anything with TopSpeed but I wasn't looking for it either.

I thought my suggestions were pretty clear.  The user though otherwise and never came back after mlmcc's suggestion which I did not feel the need to echo.

I agree.
I am not sure what Top Speed is and in the numerous times I have searched the Crystal Knowledge Base I have never seen a reference to it.

Recommend split or points to DrRyan.

The only reference to Top Speed on the Crystal site is an example of how to do a JOIN in an SQL statement.
