Experts:

We have Business Objects XI and Crystal Reports XI. Does anyone now how I can find out...if Crystal hits the DATABASE using the NOLOCK in its SQL?

I do NOT see the NOLOCK command in the SHOW SQL QUERY in Crystal..and it is my assumption that this must be handled at an ENTERPRISE level?

Or is it happening at all....the NOLOCK..that is????

Thanks

I don't know but my experience with CR8 seems to indicate the database is not locked.  Crystal is generally only reading from the database so there should be no reason to lock it.
