I've finally loaded CR XI and when I try and use the LOGONSERVER method of the report object with p2sodbc.dll, it cannot find it. Did I miss something on the install or can this be downloaded? I need it to use my odbc connection to get at my reports.

Thanks in advance.

I think it installs in the typical but if not then you need todo a custom.

Check for PDSODBC

I just reinstalled and I found a dll called crdb_odbc.dll. Will this work instead?
