Passing recordset to crystal 8.5 from ASP shows grey control

Last Modified: 2013-11-26

I have trouble showing up a report using the CRViewer in ASP. Im trying to assign the recordset to the CRViewer through ASP.

I downloaded the sample applciation for Seagate Crystal reports 8.5 from the following link


This zip file contains a folder called ADORecordsetExample. I created a System DSN named Xtreme Sample Database as instructed. But when I browse to the virtual directory created, all I see is the CRViewer ActiveX component. I do not see the report data. I just see the grey blank control

Response.Write oADORecordset.Fields(0) does work.

Please  help
