Fix: Crystal Reports 2008: Database Links Happen Automatically and Cause Unnecessary Slow-down [Field Notes]

Issue
In Crysal Reports, whenever adding a table from an existing data source, or adding a new datasource, when I click "OK", Crystal automatically switches to the "Links" tab and auto-calculates links.

99% of the time this is something I don't want it to do.

Resolution
Auto-linking can be turned off in Crystal's options with the Following Steps:

  1. From the File menu, select Options...
  2. Select the Database tab.
  3. Under the Advanced Options section, uncheck "Automatic Smart Linking."
  4. Feel your blood pressure drop to normal levels.
