Business Views helps you better manage reporting across

multiple data sources and applications by simplifying data access, change

management, and data-level security processes. An optional service in Crystal

Enterprise, Business Views allow you to integrate data from disparate sources,

handle promotion/demotion between development and production

environments, and control security at both the row and column level.


I only use Business View Manager for creating Dynamic Cascading parameters. I usually use database structures or Command Objects for all the reports.

But you can also use Business Views with Database strcutures like tables, stored procs or command objects. Some people like keeping all info in Business view manager and you just have to use the Business Views for reporting. You can also create filters and Parameters in Business View Manger. It's upto you to use Business View or connect direclty to the database.

All the best,
