Crystal Reports and connecting to multiple tables in a dataset - I'm Going Crazy!!

This is my first application, first report and first everything. Wouldn't you know the report I am trying to produce is probably more difficult!! What is happening is that I have a form(screen) up in my application with the information displayed on it from a recrod in a table that I want to put on a report to be view and/or printed and eventually down the road I want to incorporate a signature. One step at a time though, here is what I have accomplished. I have created the report, I have gotten it to display in the viewer but it will not push the data from the table that I want displayed. It only displays the text that I have typed on the form. This is a Visual Basic application created in Visual Studio 2005 using a SQL database. If you need more information then just ask and I will try to fumble through and tell you what I know. (Oh and to top it off............I am also trying to get information to display from other tables also (codes connected to descriptions etc.))

Any help would be really appreciated as I have went through tutorials, read white papers, tech notes and anything else I can find but I just can't get it to work!!

    In Crystal Reports you can connect to multiple datasources. In the report you can have multiple tables that come from different datasources. So it looks like you are ok to push the data from the form to the report but you also need to 'pull' data from tables in the database.

    Use the Report Connection wizard to connect to these new tables and drag the fields on to the report.
