When you scheduled the report, did you provide the database username and password, as well as any parameter values, if you used parameters in this report?

Agree with bdreed35.  The message "Error Message: Information is needed before this report can be processed." almost always means that parameter values weren't entered.  You can't leave Crystal Enterprise parameters blank.  You either have to put an actual value in or explicitly declare them as NULL.
