I am completely new to Business Objects I have downloaded and installed Crystal Reports 2008 on my system. But, I would like to know how I would connect this?

Hi Deepthi

You can connect to a pc-type (MS Access) or a SQL-type (MS-SQL Server, Oracle, DB-2,Sybase,etc.) kind of databases as well as a variety of data sources such as universes, XML, etc.

If you are looking for type of connections then the 3 basic type of connections used to connect to databses like MS SQL Server, Oracle etc. are ODBC, OLEDB and Native connection.

You can use the Crystal Reports 2008 user guide availabale at

Hope this helps!
