Mysql / Crystal Reports Error

Good Afternoon,

Whenever I try to create a report in CR 2008 I get the following errror message when trying to add a table to the report useing the standard report creation wizard:
"Database Connector Error: 142000:[MYSQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-5.0.67-community-nt-log] You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near `.<tablename> where 0=1' at line 1 [Database Vendor Code: 1064]"

When I use the ODBC 5.1 driver I get this error:
"The database table <tablename> cannot be found. Proceed to remove this table from the report?"  

Before it displays any data it gives me this error, then displays my data.

I'm at a loss here!

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!!

According to this document for Cystal 2008 supported platforms, you can use the MySQL ODBC 5.1

No matter what driver I try.  I get the same error.  The second one.

"The database table <tablename> cannot be found. Proceed to remove this table from the report?"

Driver was setup using RDO and not ADO.  We changed the driver out and now the report works fine.  Thanks for taking the time trying to help.
