Here's what I have now, and am  getting prompted for the password in the logon box, before the report loads. The userid, database, and servername are filled in, but not the password.

Dim rpt as New CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument

strConnstring = "Server=servername, Database = dbname, UID=sa, Pwd=Password1"

cn.connectionstring = strConnString
cn.open()

Dim crystalReportViewer1 as new CrystalDecisions.Web.CrystalReportViewer

dim rptPath as string
rptPath = Server.MapPath("Reports\CrystalInvoiceAnnual.rpt")
rpt.load(rptPath)

crystalReportViewer1,ReportSource = rpt
rpt.SetDatabaseLogon("sa", "Password1", "server", "db", True)

Rpt.Load(rptPath)

CrystalReportViewer1.reportsource = rpt
rpt.SetDatabaseLogon("sa","Password1","server", "db",True)

rpt.Refresh

If the report uses multiple tables you have to set the logon info for each table.

Something like this


  Private Sub configureCrystalReports()
        Dim myconnectioninfo As ConnectionInfo = New ConnectionInfo()
       
        With myconnectioninfo
               .DatabaseName = "SomeDatabase"
               .ServerName = "servername"
                .UserID =  "SomeUser"
                .Password = "password"
         end with
        SetDBLogOnForReport(myconnectioninfo)

    End Sub

    Private Sub SetDBLogOnForReport(ByVal myConnectionInfo As ConnectionInfo)
        Dim myTableLogonInfos As TableLogOnInfos = CrystalReportViewer1.LogOnInfo
        For Each myTabeLogoninfo As TableLogOnInfo In myTableLogonInfos
            myTabeLogoninfo.ConnectionInfo = myconnectioninfo
        Next
    End Sub

The report is driven from one view.  I've tried the code that you listed, but got the same results. While inquiring about this problem yesterday, someone suggested the ReportDocument class.

Dude, this didn't really help me solve the problem, but it did help me understand the process (if that makes any sense),  that's why I'm closing and awarding you points.

Thanks for your help,

JB
