When I click a button to open my crystal report a message appreas, physical database not found with the i symbol. The report is not displayed. How do I solve this problem and what is the root cause of this problem.

If ACCESS (or some resident DB in your app dir) you should set the database location = "same as report" via that option in crystal ide.  Also, if you are using the OCX do not code the path to th file in the properties.  Otherwise, please provide more specific info . . .
