"Database Vendor Code: 18456" appears when an employee tries to open a crystal report I have created.

I have created a Crystal Report for a sql database and only a domain administrator can open it without having to put in a password.  When I created the report I set it up as a trusted connection.  Is there any way a non-domain administrator can open up this report without having to type in the system admin password?  I also tried to open this with a simple report viewer and I get the same error code.  Any ideas?

NO,  once protected, it cannot be undone.  But why not just do the report again, and export it without any special permissions?  That will let everyone get access to it.  To redo the report is easier than trying to hack the permissions on the existing report, no?

I have tried to create the report with a domain user login and I get the same error code.  It still will not let me enter the SA password and set it up as a trusted connection.  There has to be a way a user can view a report without giving them the system admin. password.

No, not if it was created with admin rights.
