Xcelsius Present and Crystal Reports Data Consumer connection

I created a cross-tab report in Crystal. I then created an Xcelsius graph using the data from the cross-tab.I want to embed the Xcelsius model in Crystal Reports and receive data from the cross-tab report in the model. The documentation says I need to add a Crystal Reports Data Consumer connection by selecting Data>Connections. Unfortunately this options is grayed out. Is it grayed out because of the version of Xcelsius I'm using? (Xcelsius Present). If so, is there any work around?

    Yes, you'll need Xcelsius Engage in order to access Crystal. Work around, not so much, unless you can get the cross-tab data in Excel and are fine with a static version.
