The document is refgering to a form or doesn't have a form associated with it. and notes is trying to open with default form of the database and one doesn't exist. That is the meaning of the error.

Check the document properties and see whether their exists a field called FORM and if so what is the value.

Create a form in the database and see how you can open the document.

Check the documentation of Crystal reports, I hope you have to create a specific form to open the reports.

Sounds like maybe you don't have a designer liscense.  When you open the database do you see the menu option VIEW\DESIGN?
