Crystal Reports 10 - SQL scripting

How do I change the hard code SQL query table/view listed in View SQL query in CR:

The below suggested didn't work in my case:  

From the Database menu, select “Set Datasource Location”. Go to the table/view Properties. Right click "Overridden Qualified Table Name" and choose "Edit". Type the table/view name exactly as it is.  This will strip down fully qualified table/view names and just display short names. (The default in CR is to dispaly fully qualified table/view names.) You can confirm the change from the Database menu by selecting “Show SQL Query” after editing "Overridden Qualified Table Name".


Note:  I bringing over a crystal report that resides on another company's server, that does not have the full crystal installed, only the viewer.  So, on my PC I make the corrections, and then copy the report back to their server.   In order for me to test the report on my side, I have to use a different database, and when I do, the name of the database stays in the SQL script.   I can not move the crystal report back to the other companies server , and run it because I get the message Table " can not be found.  I look at the sql script and find the script still shows my testing database.

Any step by step suggestions welcome.  I'm really a "pure" CR writer, not SQL too.

You won't modify the SQL in Datase|Show SQL Query.

Instead, you'll use Database|Set Location, but you won't override the table name.  You'll need to actually point to the equivalent table through a new database connection.  You then highlight the old table and new table (which means you may need to be logged in to two database connections at once) and click the update button.  Doing this changes the underlying database connection from what it used to be to the new connection.

"Modifying the OverQualified table actually worked for this db.  Thanks"

How did you do this?  Through the Set Location interface or do you mean you changed the actual database table?

It was under the Set Location interface, Kurt
