Hello,

Usually when I want my report to access the data source, I set the file's path as Same as Report and it works ok, however when using xml as a data source, it doesn't work, it wants a specified path even when I select same as report, any ideas how to fix this problem?

Thanks,

Victor

Where are you seeing the same as report?

What version of Crystal?

I wrote lots of reports with XML files as the source for a project.  WHat we did was specify a specific directory to keep the XML files in.  They were generated by the application after the user specified the filtering cirteria.  In that way there was never a need to change the data source.

Hi,

I am trying to set the path to "Same as Report" from the Set Data Cource Location under the properties option which contains the following options: Database Type, Internal Connection and FilePath:

I need to be able to install the application to any folder, thast is why I  need the report to access the xml file from the installation's path.

Thanks,

Victor

It's working, I included the file's name in the File Path: textbox and copied the report and xml file to a new folder and it worked.

Thamks,

Great.  I thought that option had disappeared and at that time was only really useful for Access and other similar PC databases
