How to use basic connections instead of universe

How to use basic connections instead of universe

(OP)
Im a fan of crystal reports, but the server is really frustrating me.
how can i have a report built and publish it with out needing to use universe?
i just want plain old odbc connections  i write the reports and my usrs just need to open, refresh them and i want to ultimately have them ran and in their inboxes.

RE: How to use basic connections instead of universe

What type of database are you connecting to and what version of Crystal are you using?

A computer only does what you actually told it to do - not what you thought you told it to do.

ODBC to a MS SQL Database

IIRC, You can't connect straight to the database in the current version of Crystal Reports for Enterprise 4.0 - you can only use universes.  I believe it's comming in a future release, but it's not there yet.  If you had Crystal 2011 you could connect to ODBC connections.
