Creating Crystal Reports

 am really new to Crystal Reports (currently using version 8.5) and I would like to create a new report based on another.  Basically I am trying change the SQL query of the original report and since I can only view the query, I am assuming that I will have to create a whole new version of the report based on a slightly different query.  I am able to create the new report from the modified query that I created and saved in Crystal SQL Designer but it is not behaving the way I think it should and I think it might have to do with the fact that the report is created from the query and not from the database and its tables.  Ultimately, I would like to create the report from scratch by adding tables from the database but it looks like there are indexes incorporated into the report when I look into the "Visual Linking Expert".  When I did a little bit deeper into the VLE there is an option to "Add Index" but that button is greyed out.  Could someone explain to me why this is and how I can add an index to this report? Thanks
