I have a report that is completed, however there are thousands of clients records or data. So I need to be able to perform a search from the (find function, binoculars) while in main mode. this search should only return the 1 client's info to review at a time? Is this possible?

The search/find in Crystal only moves to the record and highlights the value.   It doesn't do any filtering or show only the selected records.

TO do what you want you would need to add a parameter and set it to the value you want then refresh the report.

How are you viewing/running the reports?

IN the designer and most of the viewers I have used it looks like 2 arrows head to tail one on top of the other.  In the designer it is also a menu option.

For the regular "Refresh" option, you can also use F5 (like in some Web browsers).  At least, that works in the CR designer.  I don't know about the viewers.

 Once you've added the parameter and used it in the report, when you hit "Refresh", CR will ask if you want to use the current parameter value or enter a new value.

Sorry if my answer seems to be stupid :).

You can export the complete report to pdf/excel and then by using search functionality you can reach your required data quickly.
