either you can ODBC or you can directly link to Access. There is a choice for access/excel in the database expert for connection.

Yes I am connected to the access from Crystal. I created some formulas in crystal to change the
value of 2 fields. I need this to be a permanent change in the access table.

Does just setting the values in Crystal actually change it in the database?

yes I set it up to export to excel. I get 3 sheets created in the workbook. Don't know why this is.

in an export through odbc to access I believe you will have o create a new table, so in essence you can update and replace an existing field in a data table.

I thought I could use SQL or some other language to do a write to the table. I go through the export report function. I did not see anything there for acess.
