Rank/Sort Exceeding Limit

I am currently dealing with a report that returns over 66,000 rows for a cross-tab report and I am attempting to narrow it down to the top 50 for the row selection, but due to the rows exceeding a certain value the report will not run properly. From what I've read, it seems like I need to deal with a SQL Expression field, but cannot find anything online about them. The help file is just terrible to help with it. Is it possible to do with a SQL expression field so that we can get the top 100 or so pre-ranked on the server side and then when Crystal Reports goes to process the data it will certainly be under the larger value and produce some results?
