Hi,

Everytime I run the Crystal report it always ask me for the password, even though when i create the DB connection I declare the password. I check the property of my connection and it seems the password is not saved.

how can I save the password in CR so it wont ask me again for password everytime I run the report.

I am using OLEDB Provider for SQL Server to connect.

thanks!

For security reasons, Crystal doesn't save the password.

How are you running the report?

I run the report using visual studio 2005. I can pass parameter using VS then I tried to config the passing of password in web.config but no luck.

Thanks!
