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

If you are using SQL server or client then first log onto the sql server or client and then you will not get any problem. Do write this and mail me back please
