    Hi Sailee,

    What's possible and what you should do are two different things. Is it possible, yes. Will it work, probably not. Crystal still uses relational database concepts. It needs to link table objects. There is no way to link these two objects so Crystal will attempt to do something and there's a very good chance it may crash, stall the database, return records that make no sense or it may actually work.

    If possible, it would be better if you can use one of those in a subreport and the other in the main report. Then Crystal calls them independently but it depends on how your data is structured and the type of report you are designing.

    Good luck,

    Brian
