Turning off smart linking in Crystal Reports 9/10

In the Crystal Reports Database Expert, you’ll find that tables are automatically linked when you first add them to your report. You’ll find that this automatic linking often results in incorrect link lines being drawn. You then are forced to delete the incorrect links and draw in the correct ones. While Crystal Reports 8.5 and earlier allowed you to turn this auto linking option off with a dialog box choice, you must use the Windows registry in later versions. For example, with Crystal Reports 10, you’ll need to modify the registry key
