Crystal Reports Multiple ODBC connections

I have a report that reads data from two different ODBC connections.  I've run across a problem where the report will come up blank for two invoices.  Of the 30 invoices I have, only 2 will not print.  If I change all tables to use the same ODBC connection and move the database files into a single location then the two invoices print fine.  I can't figure out what the problem is.

Crystal allows you to configure 2 different datasources but this is not recommened, specially when the two datasources are not linking togehter and you absolutely know it will work fine. So, having more than one datasource can produced unreliable/unexpected results.
If you can I would suggest using just one datasource.

If you really need 2 datasources, consider using a subreport for one of the data sources.
