I am a business user who writes a lot of queries to extract data from a Oracle database . But now I want to create better lookinng and more efficient reports . I have just got crystal reports in my machine . Could you pl. tell me step by step about how to connect to an Oracle database from crystal (odbc , tns etc are totally new to me ; have just heard people use it often) So step by step instructions please. I want to connect to the oracle databse and then run a query that I wrote- (SQL) and then get the results in crystal reports and not excel... as I usuallly do...
