Crystal Reports Novice here, trying to make some edits to a report and consolidate certain fields into one report.

Scenario :

I have two reports report A and report B

There are certain fields that I would like to integrate into report A from report B but not sure how to go about doing this I have tried opening both reports and just copying over the tbl fields I want which lets me do this action but gives me strange results. ( when running the report I get a permission error )

Any help would be appreciated.

The proper place to add field from another Datasource is Database Expert.

1. Go to Database > Database Expert

2. Create a New Connection if required and add the table with required field to Selected Tables

3. Link the tables properly and click OK

4. The New DataSource should appear in Field Explorer

5. Drag and drop the field you need to the report
