I have a report with Saved Data in it.  I need to create another report by connecting to the existing Crystal report with Saved Data.  I do not have a live connection directly to the database; I only have the existing report with saved data.

Is this possible?

What do you mean?  Do you need the data from the report or can you insert it as a subreport?

If you need the data that can't be done.

Thanks mlmcc.

I need the data from the report.  I was thinking I could access the data in the report since the data is saved with the report.  I want to use a crystal report as a datasource for another report.

The data is stored but not in a useable way.

The only thing you could do would be to run the first report and have it export the saved data to an Excel or CSV or whatever file, and then have the second report read that.
