Yes you can create the report off the query? After making sure the query is returning the dataset you want,
>go to database expert
>click on the 'Add Command' button
>Paste the query in the window
>you can also create the parameters on the right and refer to those parameters in the query
the syntax to use the parameter: field = {?yourparam}

Agree.  Another pption is to build the query in the database then use it directly from Crystal.

Crystal doesn't allow you to change the query but you can filter using the select expert.
