Crystal report using MS Access

Hello,

I created a query from MS Access 2000 to be the source of my dataset which in turn would be my source for my crystal report.  The problem is I cannot drag my query to use it as source for my dataset.  This is how I've been doing in SQL Server and this is my first time to use Access.

If this is not possible, can anyone help me how to create a crystal report using MS Access.  

Thanks for any help

This is the way i did it

I created a table, that looked exactly like the query (i suppose you could change make a make table query based on the query to create the new table)

Then use this "temp" table to make my CR, then deleted it, and used a Datatable to pass the data.

My query accepts a parameter.   I'm not sure I follow what you mean.  Can you please give me an example.
