scenario:

i have a vb program that displays a crystal report.  in my pc and a user's pc, the report comes out ok. but in another pc, this error is shown: physical database not found.

the access database is in the same folder as the report.
i've set the database location to be "same as report."  there are some link tables in the database, but all the
tables the report needs are local tables.

what could be the problem?

u are missing some files which are required. mostly dll
files...look in your pc windows/crystal directory and copy
each of them and tried out whether it solve your problem
or u can use the dependency program to see which dll has missing dependency dll which cause the problem.
