Crystal Reports don't show updated data!

I am working in VB5, and in my application, I have ActiveX controls for Crystal Reports.  When I open reports from VB5, the data shown is not the current data.  All my reports are linked to an Access database.  The actual database looks fine.  What is it that I am doing wrong?

Once you have your report open in Crystal Reports make sure you uncheck the following under File on the menu bar:
'Save Data With Report'.
Now save it and you should be in business...

I did uncheck "Save Data with Report", and in VB5, I have also set "DiscardSavedData" to TRUE.  Still, the data doesn't seem to be getting refreshed in VB.  Everything works out well in the Crystal Report program.

Another bad news, it doesn't seem to be working in Crystal Reports either.  My data is not getting refreshed.  I am not saving any data with the report, I am also refreshing data on every print.  Still its not working. :( Any help ASAP will be greatly appreciated.
in addition to unchecking the "Save data with report" option, you must checked the "Verify on Every Print" option under Database
