Simple, How to call an ODBC Crystal Reports Report From VB 6.0

This has got to be simple:

I'm writting an ap that will call a Crytal Reports .RPT file and run the report.

The report is for an ODBC database. (Progress)

Everytime I run the report I get an error message that says:

"Cannot open SQL server. Error 20599"

I've entered in the report name, user name and password into the properties of the Crystall OCX. And I know the report works.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Is your App using the same ODBC DSN as the report?  sometimes it gives you that error because the DSN names are diff.

Here is my code and it is working:

With cryReport
'    .Connect = "DSN=" & gstrDSN & ";UID= " & gUser & ";PWD= " & gPassword & ";DSQ="
     .ReportFileName = ".rpt file"
    .DiscardSavedData = 1
    .DataFiles(0) = sDataFile
    .SelectionFormula = sCriteria
    .WindowTitle = rsReport!REPORTNAME
    .Action = 1
End With

Another method, also works:

in your form load:

dim cnRptId as integer

cnRptId = cryReport.LogOnServer("p2sora7.dll", gstrDSN, "", gUser, gPassword)

'Display report, cryReport is the ocx
With cryReport
   .ReportFileName = ".rpt file"
   .DiscardSavedData = 1
   .DataFiles(0) = sDataFile
   .SelectionFormula = sCriteria
   .WindowTitle = rsReport!REPORTNAME
   .Action = 1
End With

In your form unload:

cryReport.LogOffServer cnRptId, False

If u still having problems, please post your crystal version.
