Hi,
I wanted to know if anyone could tell me where I could obtain a database schema of SAGE BusinessWorks v6. I want to write crystal reports against this database and know that crystal will do the linking for me but want to see how the company has the database designed.

Thanks!!!

I believe BusinessWorks  uses the Pervasive.SQL database engine.  You should look for DDF files (FILE.DDF, FIELD.DDF, and INDEX.DDF).  If you've got those, you should be able to use Crystal to access the data.  You might also check out the ODBC Datasources. BusinessWorks may already have DSNs set up.  If not, there may also be Pervasive Database Names setup.
