duplicate record issue
Ok quite new to crystal reporting but done some basics and got the hang of it I think.
Now I am getting more involved with reporting from active SQL tables. Issue I have at the momnet is that I have 2 tables. One has a list of personal data and one has a list of system users. They have a couple of identical columns including a unique user id(employee id number).
What I want is a report which can be run to list everyone that only appears in table A (Personal Data).
So my logical thinking is i should be able to look at table A and compare with table B and if the ID number is in table B ignore it from Table A.
Anyone ever have to do this before?

Re: duplicate record issue
You should be able to compare those fields as soon as you place them your detail section.
You can also use the selection expert to filter your results.
I also recommend you look at the "inner join" information available at http://www.w3schools.com/ - look uder SQL
