In Crystal, I've added a word document and then added database fields to it. What it is happening is that the database fields and the text from work documents are not aligned!!!

What is the best way to add MS word document to crystal and align text with the added database fields?

    You don't have any control over how the word page will be spaced.  
    If the text in the word doc is NOT always in the same place then what you are asking can't be done.

    If the text in the word doc IS always in the same place then  position your database fields while in report preview mode and that should be it.

    It may be easier to cut & paste the word doc text into a crystal text object and get rid of the ole object altogether

    Agree with both of the above.

    Also note, you will only be able to see 1 page of the Word document.
