Crystal Reports changed datasource location now getting no data

Last Modified: 2012-05-07
I have a crystal report designed in VS 2008 Crystal Reports.  When I changed the datasource location using the field explorer from my test database to my live database, I am getting a blank report.

The report has 1 table.   The table name is the same.  I clicked on Verify database and got message it is up to date.

I have no idea how to troubleshoot this.  Any idea where to start?

I have another report printing fine from the same datasource after changing locations ...
Public Const sReportPath As String = "\\MWWDC\VISIBAR\MIS\Projects_DotNet\Reports\PttPickTicket\"
    Sub LoadReport2()
        Dim cr As New ReportDocument
            cr.Load(sReportPath & "crpPttPickTicket_label.rpt")
            frmReport.CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cr
        Catch ex As Exception
            sErrNo = Err.Number.ToString
            sError = "LoadReport" & vbCrLf & Err.Description & " " & "ErrNo: " & sErrNo
        End Try
    End Sub
