When loading my form, the Oracle Logon Popup screen connects
the user to the Database. However, to use Crystal Reports
through its custom control in my form, I have to provide a
connect string again. How can I set the .connect property of
the CR custom control to whatever userid and password has
been given by the user?

The Connect property should be set to an ODBC connect string - this string can contain the UserID and password.

Set it to something like:

ODBC;DSN=[Your data source];UID=[userID];PWD=[password];

You can provide a custom dialog to allow the user to logon to Oracle in your form's Form_Load event, then set the Connect property both of your form's data control and CR control to the above string (in Form_Load).

Is there any alternative to this approach? I mean can we extract the UID & PWD from the default logon procedure of the ODBC driver?

Thanks.
