Either during building crystal report, you can select the tables involved in the report, or you can code a stored procedure selecting data from multiple tables and set it as the data source of the report.
If you have trouble writing SQL to select data from multiple tables, let me know the structure of the tables and your required output, I will help you in writing the select query.

above is right, you have to use stored procedures and joins in them, you can also use case statements to pull data from multiple tables.
in my opinion case statement is a better option since joins are always cartesian product and are relatively slower
