Hi,

I don't know if this is possible so I thought that I should ask the question first.
We have various crystal reports that have been created by contractors over a period of a couple of years. We have found that the indexes have not been used properly on a number of them and have caused problems with the database. Running slow etc. Is it possible to write a vb. Net application to run through each of the reports and list the tables ans the joins between each of the tables? And if so how can I do this? We have a small IT team and don't have the resource available to go through each of them.

Regards,

Ross

You can also export the report in Report Definition Format and get much of that information
