We're running Act! 2010 Premium and would like to build some custom reports. Clearly, Crystal is the way to go (the built-in report designer leaves a LOT to be desired). I'm comfortable BUILDING the reports but . . .
Is there a way (or add-on) that will allow my users to be able to run these reports from within ACT? Specifically, for the "current lookup".
I checked out CrystalClear Reports, and was initially excited, but from info on their web page, it doesn't look like they've updated their product since Act 6.0 (pre SQL?)
I was hoping the ACT Reports were written with Crystal, but I tried opening an ACT report with Crystal XI and it complained that it's not the correct format. ;-(

As mentioned in the earlier post, at the bottom of the referenced URL is the "Crystal Clear Provider" - it's Crystal Clear Essentials without the reports - it does two things - 1) it adds your reports to the Reports menu in ACT! 2) it provides the hooks for your report to report against the currently open database.
Good product by a smart guy,
