Crystal Reports Help

Hi,

Just wondering what a good book is on visual studios 2008 ( or 2005 if no
2008 ) that teaches you how to properly use crystal reports with it.

Or im assuming that as long as I can create a dataset and link it to a
reportviewer than any Crystal Report book will do.

I use vb.net but im assuming most books would show you vb and c

Thanks,

Miro

I would strongly recommend the PUSH. (using a (strong) dataset, as you
illude to).

I have a transaction log file where the DataSet table's Description column is actually delimited into "subcolumns" based upon the transaction id. I would like to parse these into separate fields for reporting purposes and am wondering if anyone knows if this is easily accomplished using the .NET version of Crystal Reports? For example, the description column may be reporting on a dataentry error as follows: TXNCODE: 1010001
