JDE centered Crystal Reports documentation

Does any Crystal documentation exist that addresses JDE-specific topics? A case in point is this: I am creating financials using the F0902 record and a x-tab report. I can access the account number (AID), but I can not see the related account description. When using the Enterprise Report Writer, there is the EDIT|ASSOCIATE function which allows you to access descriptions related to account numbers. I am trying to see if such a facility exists in Crystal, and again for the larger picture, if there is any JDE-centric Crystal documentation available. Please advise.


I don't know of anything built into Crystal that will do the association for you like ERW does. You need to link to the table the description is coming from to pull it in.

If you aren't sure where the description comes from, you can look at the data dictionary definition for the field to find out how its associated description is set up. Search for a post with subject "Associate Description" to find out more.
