Crystal & World

Hi Julie,

Not sure what kind of advice you are looking for. But one thing I would strongly recommend, is to buy the Unity driver for JDE World (if you haven't already). This driver has a built-in ability to do data type adjustments based on the data dictionary as well as automatically pulling in UDC descriptions for data items that have UDCs associated. Using straight ODBC obviously does not include any of this.

If you have any specific questions about Crystal, let us know.
