With Delphi I use always aliases from the BDE. By doing so it is possible to simple changes the places (ex. on a other computer) of the database files in the BDE (alias) and the Delphi application will work correct. The reports I use (written in Crystal Reports 7) are pointing directly to the database files. So when I change the location of the files in the BDE alias, Delphi will work correct, CR7 is stil using the wrong (old location) files.
How can I make CR7 using the BDE and his aliases?
