Reporting is meant to be readonly and I am not aware of any way of inserting data from CR into database.

You can export to an ODBC connection (instead of exporting to PDF, Excel, etc... ODBC is a choice on the export format drop down).

You choose the applicable ODBC to use, then it will prompt you for a login and password. It will prompt you for a table name. Type it in and it will populate that table.

You can really only do this into a new table, which Crystal will create on the fly. Can't append to an existing. Crystal will also determine the column/field names in the table, based on what they are called in the report.

I have done this a lot, and then will typically run an SELECT INTO statement to get the data out of the crystal generated table into the table I want to append it to... then delete the Crystal generated table.

Are you using CR2008 (stand-alone full version) or the version built for VS2010?

Check the version of Crystal.

DO you have any ODBC database drivers loaded or ODBC connection built?

Did you load the Crystal ODBC export drivers?

Just want to make sure - are you actually attempting to EXPORT the report (clicking the little envelope icon) or are you going to FILE | SAVE AS?

Make sure you are trying Export - the ODBC choice isn't available under "Save As"

Another, less direct, option would be to export the report to something like an Excel file and then using something else to import that file into the db.
