I have created a report in Crystal Rpt using an Access DB.  When I run the rpt from VB using the Crystal Component to  feed selparameters, I either get an error 'Incorrect logon parameters - ODBC' or the rpt will print with just the rpt titles and columns, no data.  Pls Help.  Thanks.

Thanks for answering.  I think I've left out some info.  I do not use user names and passwords on the Access DB.  I thought that if you specify crptreport for reportsource than you do not need the data control.  Are both needed?
