Server has not yet been opened, ASP
Posted on 2004-11-22
I've seen many responses to this question, but none seem to solve my problem.
I installed the little CR test kit aspxmps85.exe from a previous post and got the "Begin Here" example to work fine. The "Begin Here" report logs onto a ODBC-mdb Xtreme Sample Database and has a few columns. Very simple report, setup IIS and it works just dandy.
I modified the report and Remove/Added a different database (Xtreme Sample Database 2003) to the report. Used the same exact columns and the database is also an ODBC-mdb. I get the error message "Server has not yet been opened".
I tried the simplest form of modification to get rid of this god forsaken error message because I'm trying to display a native oracle driver CR report from asp and always got that message.
I've looked at all the ASP code in the "AlwaysRequired" and "MoreRequired" asp pages for a hardcoded DSN connection string, to no avail. I assume the CRXA???.dll just looks for the correct dll the CR report was originally developed in.
Already copied all the DLL's to winnt/system and the virtual directory from winnt/crystal. The report runs fine from CR developer. Is there any really stupid reasons you could get this error message, a mistake an abused malnurited monkey might make? If so, it's probably what i'm doing wrong.
