I am trying to document relationships in a db.  Is there a way to return a list of tables and their fields through crystal reports?  Similar to how they appear in the Field Explorer (with the type of field and the number of characters).

What database are you using?

Most databases store the table definition in a table so it may be possible to do what you want.
