I use Postgresql and crystal 9.0 SP1 everyday.

I use PgadminII or III with the odbc driver prior to the latest release.

What version of Crystal are you using?  The other day I believe I saw
Crystal had released a service pack/monthly hot fix which fixed a bug with
reporting against postgresql databases.  It was that Crystal was expecting a
Memo type instead of text?  Search the crystal knowledge base and I am sure
you can find it.

The only problem I have had with Crystal and Postgresql is that if you use
Schemas that you cannot report directly against a table if it is not in the
public schema.  You can create a view which references the table and that
will show up in the database expert but selecting a table generates a "not
implemented error."

Are you talking about a true postgres text field and not a varchar
field?  I think the text fields are postgres specific..

Has anyone out there worked with Crystal Reports and PostgreSQL?  We
have an intranet site, currently in Oracle with many Crystal Reports
files, which we are converting to PostgreSQL; the issue is that Crystal
apparently cannot read Postgres text fields--when you point a report at
a table/view that contains text fields, the text fields are simply not
listed in Crystal;
We were wondering if: 1) could this be an issue with the ODBC drivers?
(We're using the ODBC drivers installed with pgAdmin II 1.4.12); 2) if
this is an ODBC issue, is there another source for the ODBC drivers?;
