Multiple BW Queries as datasource for crystal report


Does Crystal 2008 support using two BW queries with a join as the datasource? Technically it works, but I am seeing performance issues. Is it because I am trying to use the software in a unsupported scenario? Is it recommended?

Currently we are using BOE 3.1 SP2 with Crystal 2008 to create reports on SAP BW 7.01 SPS08. The query on the BW side completes in a few minutes but the crystal report is taking about an hour to display when displayed on the BOE server.

Is this functionality enhanced in BI 4.0?
