Looking for some examples of how to create a Crystal report from a sql statement that I currently use in VB.   The sql server is local to the machine that runs the program.

hi..
Usually you will link Data Tables to your report using Database Expert. Do the same in Database Expert, select the Database and you can see Add Command. Select that and click on > button. You will get a Window, write your SQL Query there and press OK.

See the image below for your reference.

Example that how to get fields from sql statement to report viewer
Add Command

After finishing this you can see Command in Database Fields which contains all your records got from the SQL Query as result.

Hope this helps you. Try and get back with results.

I might not have asked this question correctly.    I already have the data in a dataset inside of my existing VB program.     Currently upon form submit, I pull a query and write it to a csv file before emptying the db.   In addition, to the csv file being written, I'm trying to add code that would send this dataset to a crystal report for manipulation (summaries and some formatting).

have you checked the link I have already provided (http://emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2006/09/Feeding-Crystal-Reports-from-your-application.aspx). It does exactly this (pushing a dataset to a report)

Yes I've gone through the link and get to the part where it is time to do testing, and I'm not sure how to implement the code.
