That's basically what I had done originally, until the accountant told me
about the need for invoice numbers on the report. In order to do that, I
would need to bring in the Invoices and InvoiceItems tables, as there is no
reference in the Payments table... correct?

BTW, I figured out the reason for the "ODBC Error:Driver Not Capable"
message in Crystal Reports. After comparing some reports I had made with
some reports on the FTP Server, I narrowed it down to the Report Options in
CR. All of the reports that work do *not* convert the Date-Time string. When
it is converted to Date (only in Report Options!), the error message occurs.
I don't know if this is something I had done originally when setting up CR
or SQL. Does this happen to anyone else?
