I am looking for the best solution  to my dilemma .
I have a stored procedure using a cursor that give me results from passing an invoice number to give me different tables with different information resulting from the one invoice number.
select invoice from table1

open cursor
exec sptable2
close cursor

open cursor
exec sptable3
close cursor

But now I need to show the results but cannot bind it to a dataset for a crystal report because I only see the first select. any tool modules or suggestions would be great.

You can use an output paramater on your SP to output 2 table variables.

Or even better yet generate a temp table (or even permenant table) in the SP and read from it inside the report.

But a temp table I thought of but there are different headers for each table, some similar but not totally.

You can create multiple temp tables then.

Ok if this is possible then I can take all the temp tables and make one pdf file, is that correct.
