Browsing Tables

Browsing Tables

I am using Crystal 7 w/ Mas90. I was wondering if there was an easier way to browse data in data files, other than having to use Crystal to do it?

RE: Browsing Tables

I think that MAS90 crystal uses a proprietary connection to read the tables.  If it was a standard ODBC connection you could open up the tables in Excel or MS Access which would be a very bad thing.  That would give you read/write access to the tables.

RE: Browsing Tables

MAS90 has various ODBC drivers, depending on the platform.  They provide read only access, and support the use of the MAS90 userid and password.
The ODBC drivers are used by the reporting tools that MAS90 uses, including SCR, and ship/install with the product.
Excel is the usual favorite of accountants, so you could use Excel with ODBC to peek through the data.
