Am writting a general Crystal reports viewer in C#. The application works well with all reports designed using Crystal 2008 but for reports generated with Crystal Reports prior to this version (CR 9 /10 or XI)  I get a 'The table could not be found'. or an error message similar to the one below

Error in File Customer List, with Terms {C8B9B467-656D-4654-9FC2-E663561CD0AF}.rpt:
The table could not be found.

 I edit the same report with CR 2008 making sure I save with with the new version and the program works well. All these reports are designed for MS SQL and the 'Save data With Report' option is switched off always

Question 1. What is causing the 'Table could not be found' ?

Question 2. Can I determine in any way if the CR 2008 API exposes the version of the report in which is had been designed (ie. ver 8.5 9 10 or XI) - Am using a stand alone version..and all reports are external to the application ?

TableLogOnInfo logonInfo = new TableLogOnInfo();

foreach (Table table in objRepDoc.Database.Tables)
{
myTableLocation = table.Name;
logonInfo = table.LogOnInfo;
logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.AllowCustomConnection = true;
logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = __PS_ODBC_DSN;
logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = __PS_Database;
logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.UserID = API_FrontEnd_User;
logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.Password = API_FrontEnd_Password;
logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.Type = ConnectionInfoType.SQL;
logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.IntegratedSecurity = false;

table.ApplyLogOnInfo(logonInfo);

table.Location = __PS_Database + ".dbo." + myTableLocation;

}
INSTEAD OF
 TableLogOnInfo tb = new TableLogOnInfo();
    tb.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = __PS_ODBC_DSN.ToString();
    tb.ConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = __PS_Database.ToString();
    tb.ConnectionInfo.UserID = API_FrontEnd_User.ToString();
    tb.ConnectionInfo.Password = API_FrontEnd_Password.ToString();
    tb.ConnectionInfo.IntegratedSecurity = false;

    for (int ii = 0; ii < objRepDoc.Database.Tables.Count; ii++)
     {
     objRepDoc.Database.Tables[ii].LogOnInfo.ConnectionInfo.AllowCustomConnection = true;
     objRepDoc.Database.Tables[ii].ApplyLogOnInfo(tb);
     }
