Hi,
I have created a simple crystal report and I am running with VB6.0 . Its working fine on the same computer on which Crystal report has been created but once I am deploying crystal report on the ohter machine & running there then I am getting msg "Server has not yet been opened". I am using the same ODBC & ODBS's configration.
I have coded VB to run the Crystal report like this...
In thie form CRViewer has been embaded and named as CRViewer1 .

    Dim globreport As CRAXDRT.report
    Dim objCrApp As CRAXDRT.Application  
    Dim report As CRAXDRT.report  
   
    Set objCrApp = New CRAXDRT.Application
    Set globreport = objCrApp.OpenReport(RepName)
    CRViewer1.ReportSource = globreport
    CRViewer1.ViewReport


Please help me out.

Ordinarily, you would not get this error message unless you are calling the logon to server functions in Crystal, and I don't see that you are in your code example.

These articles from Crystal Decisions may point you in the right direction for correcting your error:

But I am not having crystal report s/w on my other m/c which is giving me this problem. So how can I set the location in report?
I did 'set location' on my test machine and moved over the production m/c as per the http://support.crystaldecisions.com/library/kbase/articles/c2011321.asp but when I am running over my test m/c its working fine but again when I am running over the production machine I am getting the same error.

Advice me...

Hi Now my code is...

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim myCR As New CRAXDRT.Application
    Dim myRpt As CRAXDRT.report
   
    str_report_name = "TestODBC1.rpt"
    str_report_name = App.Path & "\" & str_report_name
   
    Set myRpt = myCR.OpenReport(str_report_name)
   
    With myRpt
      .Database.Tables(1).SetLogOnInfo "smcorptest", "Pubs", "test", "test111"
      .ReportTitle = rptTitle
    End With
   
    CRViewer1.ReportSource = myRpt
    CRViewer1.ViewReport
End Sub

even I have used "SetLogOnInfo" but still I am having problem...

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   Dim myCR As New CRAXDRT.Application
   Dim myRpt As CRAXDRT.report
   
   str_report_name = "TestODBC1.rpt"
   str_report_name = App.Path & "\" & str_report_name
   
   Set myRpt = myCR.OpenReport(str_report_name)
   
   With myRpt
     .Database.Tables(1).SetLogOnInfo "smcorptest", "Pubs", "test", "test111"
     .ReportTitle = rptTitle
   End With
   
   CRViewer1.ReportSource = myRpt
   CRViewer1.ViewReport

Please try the followings:
1) I suppose that the "smcorptest" is your ODBC datasource, make sure that on the production machine, you can open up the ODBC Administrator, and test connection there it works fine;
2) Add one line of code:
With myRpt
    .Database.Tables(1).SetLogOnInfo "smcorptest", "Pubs", "test", "test111"
    .Database.Tables(1).Location = "database.dbo.tablename" '<- add this line
    .ReportTitle = rptTitle
  End With
replace database with the name of your data(pubs i suppose), and then replace the tablenme with the name of the table you report is created off; or if this sounds a bit confusing, you could open the report in Crystal Reports on the test machine, and then go to Database|Set Location, and in the TableName box, delete "database.dbo." and leave ONLY the tablename there, then bring the report to production machine, without above code change it should now works;
3) If above two still not working, I suggest you try one last thing:
With myRpt
    .Database.Tables(1).SetLogOnInfo "", "", "test", "test111" '<change this line to empty the first two parameters
    .ReportTitle = rptTitle
  End With

Hope this helps.
