Hi
I use Crystal Reports to show summaries of my data from an ACCESS database. In one case, I want to have two datasets from which to draw data for my report (the second dataset is for a SUBreport). I know how to attach ONE dataset on a Crystal Report, I am using the following:            
oRpt.SetDataSource(MyDataSet.Tables(0))
How do I pass two datasets in a Crystal report?

Thanks for your help
Jason

Can you please be more specific? Give an example or something like that? How can I define which table each report/subreport uses?

i mean u can put all the tables in the dataset
then when u r creating the report and using the wizard u can choose this dataset and pick up the tables related to the report
u can do the same when creating the sub report

Are you trying to use dataset 1 for the main report and dataset 2 for the subreport all the time?

OK razo,
give me a couple of days to try to use the solution you suggest and I'll come back to you.

Yes RacinRan, I am always using dataset 1 for the main report and dataset 2 for the subreport. Any good ideas?
