Hello
I'm using CR 8.5 DEV ED to create reports.  My company uses TOAD FOR Oracle for DB/Table review and manipulation.  I have assigned to make CR reports connecting to the DBs/Tables in Oracle, how do I do this?  I will give more DB setup info as needed.  Thanks in advance.

You will need to crreate an ODBC connection to Oracle and use that as the data source for the report.

As well as ODBC you can also use an OLE DB connection using teh oracle data provider, or use the oracle server connection supplied with crystal.

These can be selected when you creat a new report using teh database expert and select create new collection
