Hi guys,

I had to develop a report that uses an Excel 2007 workbook as a data source. This workbook is saved on a drive. I can enter the parameters and run the report fine in designer but am unable to enter the parameters in InfoView as i'm being asked for a username and password. I've tried using my own windows username and password (has access to the share) but it doesn't work. I've attached a screen shot of what's happening. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Alan.

You need to enter a valid Infoview or Crystal Enterprise login and password.

Was the report built using the spreadsheet on the share?
