Specifying database in URL for Crystal Web Component Server
Posted on 2004-10-26
We are using the standard edition of Crystal Enterprise version 8 to deliver reports via our internet. The reports are selected from a menu and parameters entered into a form. This is then transformed into the appropriate URL using PHP.
I have read the documentation on "URL Commands for the Web Component Server" (ce8_url_commands.pdf) which has a section on "Logging onto your Database", but have not been able to get change the database from that which the report was originally designed with.
The documentation does specifically refer to "SQL or ODBC databases", but we are using OLEDB for our connection.
Can anyone tell me how to specify parameters in the URL that will allow me to specify a different database for OLEDB.
