I have a crystal viewer application in vb 2005 and when a Report has two diferent database sources then the login screen is displayed.

For example if a report has 3 tables from
Server:TestServer
DB: Test1
user: sa
pass: sa

and 2 tables from
Server:TestServer
DB: Test_2
user: sa
pass: sa

how can i set the logon info for each table?

Thanks
Dim intCounter As Integer

        'object of table Log on info of Crystal report

To the best of my knowledge you can't unless you are using a subreport for one of the data sources.

Crystal doesn't "officially" support using 2 datasources in a report except through the use of subreports.

They acknowledge it does work for the report but the products that allow viewing don't support it.

This is where PUSH reporting comes in handy.
You do not bind anything. Populate your 3 datasets in VB and push them into the report. The report is no way tied to a database (or many).
