Hi,
I'm getting error: Run-time error 20534 Error detected by database DLL
                error: Run-time error 20599 Cannot open SQL server
I'm working with VB6 and crystal report 8.5, SQL server 2000 as database. I'm developing an application where the database in located on server side. When I first test it on my own computer where my database is local, it work fine. my code is as follow:

Public Function printPacking(strInvoice As String)


    With ShippingDocumentsPrint
        .crpt.Reset
        .crpt.ReportFileName = App.Path & "\report\Packing_List.rpt"
   'crpt.Formulas(0) = "invoice='Hello'"
        .crpt.SelectionFormula = "{Packing_List.P_invoice_no}='" & strInvoice & "'"
        .crpt.Connect = oDBConn.ReportStr
   
        .crpt.WindowState = crptMaximized
        .crpt.PrinterSelect
        .crpt.Action = 1
       
    End With
       
End Function

In another class:

Public Property Get ReportStr()
   
    openConfig

    ReportStr = "DSN=" & ServerName & ";UID=TTACTIF;PWD=ttspl;DSQ=" & DBName
   
End Property

But when i migrate the database to server,  I use the same String for normal ADODB connection, it works with no error either when the database is on my comp or it's on server. Only the crystal report and database connection got problem. Run-time error 20534 Error detected by database DLL

I have try to change the UID="" and PWD="" on local, and it works perfectly fine also. So i'm thiking of if there is a different setting of SQL server that make the outcome different, because i believe the sql server on the server might have a more secure setting.

If I run the .exe file then the error is different which is Run-time error 20599 Cannot open SQL server

Urgent, pls help

Thank You

You might need to VerifyDatabase, since CR stores the db information, and even a slight change in the db structre, may cause error. You could do this by code, or from CR designer, for the server side database.

Hope it helps.

In general, the database structure, used both in customer location and your place, should be exactly same, otherwise, need to VerifyDatabase or Set Location. Also check with installation as already suggested by Krash_io.

Cheers.
