Thanks for your quick reply!  I am already very comfortable with connecting to both Access and SQL Server databases.  My question is whether the examples in the book use a database that is available in .mdb format, i.e. Xtreme rather than Adventureworks.  If so, does the .mdb version of the database include all the same tables, fields, and relationships as the SQL version used in the book?
 
I learn best by hands-on practice, and I am excited about buying this book if I can use the examples in the book as a hands-on tutorial without running into problems with my .mdb database being out of sync with the book.  My projects will use Access databases for single-user desktop applications, and I really don't want to install SQL Express and work with examples in a SQL database in order to have success working with the examples in the book.  Thanks!

Yes, I do have tutorials in the book you can walk through. I mostly use the Customer table for all of them b/c it's easy to understand and everyone has access to a simple customer table. The tables are all Access, except for some later chapters, b/c I also don't want to deal with SQL Server either unless necessary. When writing a large book, the simpler the better.  :-)

Hello:

I've just bought the book Crystal Reports Encyclopedia .NET 2005/2008. It mentions on page 13 going to this site (www.CrystalReportsBook.com) to download sample code. I'm sorry but I can't find the where the link is. Can anybody please help? Much appreciated.

Hi - here is the link for downloading the sample code. You need to have your book in front of you when you download it.
