We're using CR XI and BO XI,
we've developed a report wit a subreport in it.
When we deploy the report to BO XI it asks twice for the password. The datasource is the same?
What can we do?
Thank you

Crystal log onto the database for both the main and subreports.  It doesn't know it is the same source so it needs the password twice.

I am not that familiar with the BO XI but I believe you can save the password when you save the report in BO XI.

Use login credentials that are setup for the BO SERVER...vs..the report seems to be searching for the report developer's login credentials instead of the SERVER's login....
