Login Crystal Report in runtime

Hello,
        At design time, the crystal report 7 seem save the userid and
password. (odbc to sql server).  Therefore, everyone can open
the  report file without fill in the login prompt.  How to disable
the saving userid and password and set them in runtime in my application?

Thanks.
Rgds.

So do your users logon to the SQL Server before the program allows them access?

If so:
Set CRXTables = CRXSubreport.Database.Tables
Set CRXTable = CRXTables.Item(1)
Set CRXTable.SetLogOnInfo <ServerName>, <databasename>, <UserID>, <Password>

Hi Alan,

Crystal supports two methods (LogonServer, LogoffServer) which can be used for the purpose of logging on and off at runtime. The methods have an implementation for most (all?) of the available VB-design components / libraries.

Check out the Crystal help file for  appropriate usage.

regards,

Tomas

sorry, i made a stupid mistake.
Actually, crystal report saves provider name, server name, and user id.  I found it by "edit" the rpt file.
By default, it will send blank password to the sql server.  The testing account in sql server has blank password.  Therefore, i misunderstand that the crystal report save the blank password.
