Dynamic Reports working with tables but not with Stored Proceedures - URGENT

We are using Crystal Reports 9

We are able to overide the connection to the tables with the following:
===================================================

Dim objectFactory,ConInfos,ConInfo,DBName
Set objectFactory = CreateObject("CrystalReports.ObjectFactory.2")

Response.ExpiresAbsolute = Now() - 1

Set ConInfos = ObjectFactory.CreateObject("CrystalReports.ConnectionInfos")
Set ConInfo = Server.CreateObject("CrystalReports.ConnectionInfo")

DBName = Trim(Request("DBName"))

Dim ConnAtts : Set ConnAtts = Server.CreateObject("CrystalReports.PropertyBag")
ConnAtts.EnsureCapacity 3
ConnAtts.Item("Database DLL") = "pdsodbc.dll"
ConnAtts.Item("Database Name") = DBName
ConnAtts.Item("Server Name") = DBName

With ConInfo
      .Attributes = ConnAtts
      .UserName = Request("UserName")
      .Password = Request("Password")
      .Kind = 1
End With

===============
etc.

Then recalling the tables with the connection to call the report
===============

Dim clientDoc
Set clientDoc = ObjectFactory.CreateObject("CrystalClientDoc.ReportClientDocument")
Dim tableCollection, table
clientDoc.Open theReportName

Dim tables, newTable

Set tables = clientDoc.Database.Tables

For Each table In Tables
      Set newTable = Server.CreateObject("CrystalReports.Table")
      Set newTable = table.Clone(True)
      newTable.ConnectionInfo = ConInfo
      clientDoc.DatabaseController.SetTableLocation table, newTable
      Set newTable = Nothing      
Next

viewer.ReportSource = clientDoc.ReportSource
=================================================

The above works beautifully to pull the Report, specifiying the DB Dynamically and view the report.... that has tables....

If the report uses Stored Proceedures... the above loop does not work and gives the following error:
=================================================

RptControllers.dll error '800002c5'

The table 'p_NonLevel_Report;1' could not be found. Error in File C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\{667260C3-E94B-41C8-9DF5-05D0E8482FCE}.rpt: The table could not be found
=================================================

Being that the name p_NonLevel_Report:1 is actually a stored proc., not a table at all.


We need a solution to fix the loop to call both tables and stored proceedures and the report understand each.

but it sounds like you just need to apply a hotfix:

This question has been asked before and I believe the answer was you cannot switch a report built with tables to use stored procedures through code.

If that is what you are trying to do I'll try to find the reference.

mlmcc, the compiled report itself is referencing stored procs, not tables, thus the error. We are preparing to do the Service Pack update above referenced by Matt... hope that will be the fix.

Question: is there any code as with my loop above that we may reference the collection to identify the stored procs vs. tables, so that the report will work correctly?

We will be applying the service pack soon...

side note... we got all of the reports working, both with tables and with stored procs, on the db, we were not applying the proper security for the CrystalUser to have access to the stored proc itself.

Cause in point: CHECK YOUR DB SECURITY

Thanks for all your help.
