Hello I'm using the Report Designer for Crystal Reports 6.0.  The problem that I'm having is that when I go to open the report it is saying ODBC login failure.  When I created the report I put in a valid Username and Password assuming it would use these durin execution, but it does not seem to be using these and I can't find where to set them.

Assuming you are using VB & Sql Server try the following:

crwReports.Connect = "DSN = server;UID = username;PWD =password;DSQ = databasename"

Of course, change server,username,password, and databasename to match your system
