Navision Reporting

Hello all, please excuse the novice question, but I am indeed a novice when it comes to this subject.

As a company we use Navision as our accounts package.  We have Crystal Reports and Business Objects.  I have created many Crystal Reports historically from Sage (the old ERP).  I would like to create reports from Nav using Crystal.

So I have 2 questions:

Firstly does anyone know if this is possible?  

Secondly does anyone know where I can find a listing of tables and fields used by Nav?

Many thanks

Assuming you can find an ODBC database driver for Navision, you can use it as the data source for Crystal.

This link seems to have a definition of the tables in Navision.
