Hello william,

please check the method it is using to connect to database. is it through an OleDb connection string or through ODBC or what ???

after confirming this, test the connectivity. then only try to login through crystal report. if you want to go with OleDb method, then simply create a <anyname>.udl file anywhere. Double click on it, select the database type, provide the database details and login test, click on test connection. This will confirm you about the connectivity. Then you can move ahead for crystal report.

Happy Coding !!!
