Hello all,

Could someone help me on my problem...  I have been at it for 2 days now...

On my Win 2000 machine, my program is running well.  I can print all my reports.  The problem is when i run the program in another PC, only some reports can be printed.
Im using a data environment as a source for my reports.

Anyone have ideas?

Thanks

various...

I use an "on error resume next" but i log the error on function end.

These are the various errors i get:
Win NT: error 3705
Win 9x: error 380

3705 also occurs on my machine(2000) but it can still print having the "on error resume next"

Some explanation on my error:
3705: I modify the connectionstring on an open connection
380: Same line, modifying the connectionstring

Hello

  are you sure that the lastest MDAC installed on nt and win 9x?, the MDAC came with newer versions of windows, like win 2000/XP and ME

> I modify the connectionstring on an open connection
Make sure you close your Connection (myConn.Close) before you reopen/modify it. and Why you want to modify an open connection?

Do you have some codes in Data Environment or Data Report?

ryancys,
I do that 'cause if I don't do it, a login screen will pop up on the different pc.. the one where it asks for a user name and password to connect to the datasource... actually, i tried using this code:
  if myconn.state<>0 then myconn.close
before calling myconn.open sConnectionString, but i found it still has the same error so i just returned to my old code w/c was modifying the connectionstring directly...
bad idea?

I have no codes in both DE and DR...

emoreau,
i'll check the link... thanks...

emoreau,
The link explains about err 3705 when setting .ActiveConnection property.  Im not using that property, so i guess thats not the cause.  My problem is actually more on the printing.

I have tried doing below:
  if conn.state<>0 then conn.close
  conn.open sConnectionString
  'set command
  'call datareport

Using the above code, 3705 is gone on my PC and on the others as well.  No other error on my Win2000 but error 380: Invalid property value is logged on the other machines.  This i believe does the no-printing.  380 is raised when opening the connection.

Hi guys, just an update...
i just found out the reason for my problem...
The printouts take its data from a parameterized command in a data environment...
Well, the param i used is a date.  Just so happens that date format vary on different machines.

And all the while I was putting the blame on the datareport.  Thanks for the help guys.
