finding the .ddf files for Crystal Reports


What path or folder should I be looking for to find the .ddf files?

I understand that not all of the tables are available in the .ddf files.  Just how limited is it?  I need to write some PO reports, what PO tables are missing?

Thank you


RE: finding the .ddf files for Crystal Reports

A little confused as to what you are looking for. If you mean you need a listing of the ddf's you can find them in the Peachtree Help files under DDF. There will be a complete listing of all the ddfs and the fields.

All you have to do is point your SET LOCATION from Crystal to your database folder. The database folder is the same folder that stores you company info such as C:\peachw\compname

Hope this helps you

Thank you, I think "peachw" is what I was looking for, I still can't find it but now I know it's a permission thing and I know what folder to ask for.

I did not know that there was a .ddf table listing in the help files, I had heard from several people that they were hidden and cryptic so I didn't even think to look there.

Thank you
