How to report from Timeslips 2008 in Crystal Reports XI

Posted on 2007-11-14
Last Modified: 2008-07-08
Does anyone have any experience accessing a Timeslips 2008 database through Crystal Reports. I am trying to do so. I have installed the CR add-on for Timeslips which allows Crystal Reports to connect. I have successfully created a report which shows all my Slips in the dB but as soon as i add the Users table and try to add a User Name to the report CR crashes? Is there an error log any where i can look at?

This is getting annoying...

The only error log would be the system error logs.

How are you adding the user table?

Are you linking it to the timeslip table?

Are you linking it to the other tables in the report?

not as of yet. I'm simply trying to display data from two different tables from the TS database. I can display data from 1 table, but when i add a second table it crashes.

YOu need to link the tavles otherwise you are doing a cross join  so if the first table has 100 records and the second has 100 you get 10000 records returned.

Also it may be trying to join them on multiple fields.
