I have a Crystal Report that displays order information and order details. It has 4 tables that are linked together by different fields - works fine. I would like to add to the header of each page "Company info" from another table. Unfortunately, this company table has no field that I can link it an order. There is only one company table record.
Does any one know how I can attach this company table/record to my report?

You can't.  Since it doesn't have a field to lonk by.

How will you be able to select the single record or foes the table only have 1 record?
If it only has one record you can add it and simply not join it to the others.  You will get a cross-join but since there is only 1 record it won't affect the recordset results.

If there are many companies in the table but only one record per company you could use a subreport to dosplay the information.
You would still need a method of selecting the correct company.
