What can I use to identify crystal report and sql server views and stored procedures that use specific tables in our databases.  Can this be done using profiler or is there a way to search all crystal reports in boe by what tables they select from (i.e. the syntax in 'view sql')?

There are no Crystal tools available to do what you want directly.

You can "export" a report in Report Definition Format which gives you a text file showing all about the report.  As I recall it does list the tables/views/SPs

There are 3rd-party tools that give the information.  Look at the cross reference tools
