Crystal Reports has the ability to create a report that references two
different databases. Does InfoMaker have this capability? If so, how do
we attach to two different databases?

Thank you!

Not really. If you use sqlserver there is a way of doing it. With Oracle
you can use database links. But for most databases this is not an option.
It definitely would be nice to have this option.
