    Good chance that the 1st time you are displaying saved data (data saved in the .rpt file).  Check if that option is turned on for that report under the File menu in Crystal).

    Make sure the PC can connect to the data source.  For example, if using ODBC, make sure the ODBC DSN is defined on that PC.
