Are you getting the request when you run the application?

If you provide a login does the report run?

Are you passing the login information to the report in the application?

Here is an example of how to pass the login information

for out access database we dont have any userid and password.
and we are created dataset and from this dataset we exported data into xml file and we assigned this xml file as data source to the crystal report.

we have already gone through that link but not solved our problem. and one more thing is
in which we have exported dataset data into xml file in that system only its working properly without displaying that database login screen and in all other system while running the application we are getting that screen.

and the application is developed in dot net

Are you getting the request when you run the application?

yes

If you provide a login does the report run?

we dont have any login details for access database

Are you passing the login information to the report in the application?
No  (as we dont have any login information for my database)

What version of Access?  I believe that with Access 2000 you need to provide the login in name ADMIN and no password from Crystal even if the database doesn't require a password.
