It is quite likely that Crystal has some difficulties to produce perfect
Word documents. By mere intention, Word is the one and only program to
do this trick perfectly.
LibreOffice Base can do the same as Crystal Reports. It can connect to a
wide variety of databases and create reports as Writer documents or Calc
documents. Once you have established such a database connection you can
access the tables (or subsets of tables) in any of your office documents.
Simply hit F4 and drag any icon, column or row(s) of the "Bibliography"
into any office document.
Reportedly, the Report Builder Extension works with LibreOffice as well
as with OpenOffice.org:
Based on a third-party report engine it can create fairly professional
reports, including page levels, charts and database pictures.
Hope this helps,
