Hi all,  we are in the process of upgrading from 7.5.3 w Actuate to 12.0.6 w BO Crystal Reports.  I prefer using Crystal Reports as a tool, but we have had to write stored procedures to handle the logic behind certain report parameters.  When I look through some of the out-of-the-box reports, I can see they are pointing to the Clarity Universe.  I was wondering how other users do their reporting?Do you write Stored Procedures?Are you connecting to the standard CA Universe (is it possible to have logic controlling the results - returning lower levels of data based on parameter choice etc.)  Are you creating your own Universes?  in which case - how have you constructed these universes? did you create  one or many?      so many questions!I just want to make sure I set out doing our reporting in 'the right way' (there may be no such thing as this)  or a 'best practise' kind of  way!  I'd be very interested in your response on this, everyone!  Thanks in advance for your time,Matt
