Hi All
I am new to .net, as i worked majorily on VB6.0 & Crystal reports,
I have developed an Window application in VB.net/SQL Server2000 and using
Crystal reports8.5, I have used the CRViewer in the form.
Now my problem is when i try to open Crystal report thro VB.net, it will
prompt for database login password, which i have already supplied in Crystal
report and also thro the application.(I am using DSN based connection)
Please help me to solve this problem....

Sample Code.
{
on Button click...
Dim rpt1 As New Form2 ' Here Form2 is the form with CrystalReportViewer,
ReportSource in Viewer is set to RPT file...
rpt1.Show()
}
Thanks in advance....
I apoligise if this is the wrong forum to post this question.

Regards,
Murali

Hi,

You state 'it will prompt for database login password, which i have already
supplied in Crystal report'. Have you supplied this info. in the wizard for
the db connection or have you hard-coded it? If you have hard-coded it can
you provide an example.

Rgds, Phil

Hi Murali,

Unfortunately I made this 'mistake'! :)

Although you will probably see that the pop-up login info box always
includes the login name, it still requires the password. This apparently is
the correct operation, although personally I don't see the need for
specifically coding the info. if it has already been entered through the
IDE.

However, what you need to do is use the TableLogonInfo Class of CR. Here's
an example:-

[Global Decs]

Dim objRepDoc As New ReportDocument
Dim crTable As Table
Dim crLogInfo As CrystalDecisions.Shared.TableLogOnInfo

[method call - maybe in load or cmdbutton]

crTable = objRepDoc.Database.Tables(0)
crLogInfo = crTable.LogOnInfo
With crLogInfo.ConnectionInfo
.UserID = "username"
.Password = "password"
End With
crTable.ApplyLogOnInfo(crLogInfo)
frmRep.CRViewer.ReportSource = objRepDoc
frmRep.Show()

Let me know if you have problems. Good luck. Phil

Anyway please suggest an alternative option....

Hello,

Use This code

Dim crReportDocument
crReportDocument = New TestReport

crConnectionInfo.ServerName = databaseServer
crConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = databaseName
crConnectionInfo.UserID = databaseUser crConnectionInfo.Password =
UserPassword

crTables = crReportDocument.Database.Tables
Dim i As Integer
i = 1
For Each crTable In crTables
'crTable = crTables(i)
crTableLogOnInfo = crTable.LogOnInfo
crTableLogOnInfo.ConnectionInfo = crConnectionInfo
crTable.ApplyLogOnInfo(crTableLogOnInfo)
crTable.Location =
crTable.Location.Substring(crTable.Location.LastIndexOf(".") + 1)
Next
CRViewer.ReportSource = crReportDocument

Thanks,
