Crystal Reports Physical Database Not Found

I know there have been a lot of posts, regarding this question, but I have a client who's been getting the Crystal Reports error, "Physical database not found." The catch is, he doesn't see this if he logs on as administrator, only as a user with non-administrator permissions. Anyone have any thoughts? What more info do you need?

Thanks in advance,
Steve.

Sounds like the nonadmin account doesn't have permissions tot he database or the connection.

Sorry guys, that I haven't replied to your posts. I thought the non-admin permissions solution might fit - e-mailed my client that question, and have yet to hear back from him. When (if?) I do, I'll reply accordingly.
