Refer the Business View Manager guide to learn how to build the Business View. Once the Business Views are built you can use them as the datasource like any other d/b objects (such as tables/view/sp)

Note: in my application I am running the version XI runtime; however, the report with the Dynamic parameters was built with Version 2008.  I am thinking there is a .dll compatibility issue with these two versions.  Do you think this is the cause of this error?

If so, is there any way to save a report in 2008 so it is compatible with version XI?

As far as I know the reports form CR2008 are file compatible with CR XI.  I have opened reports built in CR2008 in CR XI.  So long as none of the new features are used they run fine in CR XI.  I haven't tried them in a CR XI application.

In fact we built a report in CR2008 with optional parameters and when opened in CR XI they remained optional.

Thanks Mlmcc,

So if it is not a compatibility issue then it should work without generating the error, so any suggestion on why the error is being generated?

There may be issues when using a viewer.  We did it in Crystal designer not an application.

I don't have an answer since I haven't used CR2008 in an application

Yes, it is working with the full Crystal Report package, but not with the Viewer / Runtime version.  I have checked and I am fairly sure we do have the latest updates for the Crystal XI viewer files.

Maybe a bug in the viewer files that is fixed in the main application files?

The application uses its own viewer which is different from the one available for applications.  It may be something in that.



I haven't seen anything that indicates it is not compatible.

We will continue to explore the compatibility differences with the viewer and the full application to see if there is a problem in compatibility.
