1.Pulling the data when they are stored with GUIDS across several table.-(if iam right i have to write a stored proc to retrive appropriate data,in that case can some one give me sample queries to achieve that)
2.After I design the report with Crystal,I have to call it in ASP.net application,what are the steps to be taken care of.(wher shld i publish the report,how can I call it using ASP.net)
