How do you join sql server tables in the below scenario in crystal?

Table 1.
ReelNumber -accepts Table3 ChildReelNumber values or Table2 ReelNumber values


ChildReelNumber(values are based on column ReelNumber i.e if ReelNumbe is C2525 and tehre are five ChildReelNumber numbers each will be named C2525/1 ,C2525/2 etc etc)

My current link are giving duplicates based on the number of ChildReelNumber rows.

How can i sort this out?

I don't understand the structure you are describing.

Please provide a brief description of each table and how it relates to the other two?

am hoping the above diagrams explain my problem.

The other way would be to create a formula to output data in the report depending on the printstage.
I tried that but still got the same results.

That is the way linking works.  Each record in a table is linked to each record in the other tables.  Since you have multiple records in one of the tables you will get multiple copies of the other fields.

One way around this in the report would be to put the information into the group header or footer so it is displayed only once.
