SQLServer 2008 DATE datatype appearing as a STRING

We are currently in the process of upgrading our tables to use some of the new datatypes available in SQL Server 2008. The problem is our Crystal Reports XI R2 SP5 installations are viewing the DATE datatypes as Strings, preventing us from linking to DATETIME fields on other tables. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks in advance.

    I did do a search (for hours, actually) before joining the forums and posting. Please don't assume someone didn't search if they couldn't find the answer.

    Thank you for the link.
