We had created many crystal report on one server (say X)and database (say Y). Now we have moved our application to another server (say X') and database (say Y'). When we run the report, it says that datafields used in the report are invalid. Is there any way to make such fields independent of the Server and database names.

thanks

Crystal is strongly tied to the order of the fields in the resultset. The fields MUST appear in the same order or everything goes TU. If I might make a suggestion, check out Data Dynamics ActiveReports for a long term solution.

With Crystal Reports, you can't make them independent, but you can alter the databaselocation (database\set location).
