Crystal Report 8.5

I have packaged my vb files using the package n deployment tool. Everything works fine when I deploy it on another hard disk. The main problem is with my crystal report. 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.

The problem is with your database location please specify how are you connecting ur report to database if through dsn then make dsn on machine u r deploying. other wise check path for database is same as on ur machine.

still not working give details of ur database msaccess or what how ur connecting and all
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 . . .
