crystal report - how to display data from two tables

Hi all,

My question i about crystal reports.
In my ms 2008 sql database i have two tables like this :

table one
driver_id           driver_name          car_id

table two
car_id               car_name

When i populate datagrid in win form i get result :
DID          Driver name          Car
1              Name 1                 Car Name 3
2              Name 2                 Car Name 1
3              Name 3                 Car Name 2

But on report result is  :

DID          Driver name          Car
1              Name 1                 car_id 3
2              Name 2                 car_id 1
3              Name 3                 car_id 2
                                           (This column displays id's and i wont to show car names)

How can i display car names instead of car_id's. Tables are linked
(table_one.car_id (int) < - > table_two.car_id (int) ) in sql database and on crystal report.
Can someone please explain me how to do that on this dummy table.

Best regards,

Make sure you have added both tables to the report and that they are linked on car_id.
Then you use the car_name field in your report, not the car_id.
