CR XI Report from SQL Stored Procedure

I can't seem to get this report to get the logon info passed.  The report is based on a SQL Stored Procedure.  My users keep getting the Database login dialog box.  It has the Servername, Login ID and Password but the database is blank (and you cannot enter it).  I've been trying the suggestions on this website to no avail.  The User passed in has dbo rights to the db and rights to execute the stored proc.  I've tried it with a sub report and without a sub report.  VS2005  CR XI

Here is my function
 Friend Function ViewReport(ByVal sReportName As String) As Boolean

        'Declaring variables
        Dim intCounter As Integer
        Dim intCounter1 As Integer

        'Crystal Report's report document object
        Dim objReport As New _
                    CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument

        'object of table Log on info of Crystal report
        Dim ConInfo As New CrystalDecisions.Shared.TableLogOnInfo

        'Sub report object of crystal report.
        Dim mySubReportObject As _
                  CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.SubreportObject

        'Sub report document of crystal report.
        Dim mySubRepDoc As New CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.ReportDocument      
       
        Dim index As Integer

        Try

         
            'Load the report
            objReport.Load(sReportName)

                     
            objReport.SetDatabaseLogon("XXUSER", "USERPWD")


            ConInfo.ConnectionInfo.UserID = "XXUSER"
            ConInfo.ConnectionInfo.Password = "USERPWD"
            ConInfo.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = "SqlServer1"
            ConInfo.ConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = "DB109"
               

       

            ' Loop through each section on the report then look
            ' through each object in the section
            ' if the object is a subreport, then apply logon info
            ' on each table of that sub report

            For index = 0 To objReport.ReportDefinition.Sections.Count - 1
                For intCounter = 0 To _
                      objReport.ReportDefinition.Sections(index).ReportObjects.Count - 1
                    With objReport.ReportDefinition.Sections(index)
                        If .ReportObjects(intCounter).Kind = _
                           CrystalDecisions.Shared.ReportObjectKind.SubreportObject Then
                            mySubReportObject = CType(.ReportObjects(intCounter), _
                            CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.SubreportObject)
                            mySubRepDoc = _
                             mySubReportObject.OpenSubreport(mySubReportObject.SubreportName)

                            For intCounter1 = 0 To mySubRepDoc.Database.Tables.Count - 1
                                mySubRepDoc.Database.Tables(intCounter1).ApplyLogOnInfo(ConInfo)
                              ' Tried setting twice
                              '  mySubRepDoc.Database.Tables(intCounter1).ApplyLogOnInfo(ConInfo)
                            Next
                        End If
                    End With
                Next
            Next
           
           
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = Nothing

            objReport.SetDatabaseLogon("XXUSER", "USERPWD")

            'Set the current report object to report.

            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = objReport

            CrystalReportViewer1.Show()
            Return True
        Catch ex As System.Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Function

Are you changing the database or the server being used?

You are applying the connection info to the subreports but not to the main report

I added objReport.Database.Tables(intCounter1).ApplyLogOnInfo(ConInfo) but still the same result

I did that in a loop (forgot to say that

 For intCounter1 = 0 To objReport.Database.Tables.Count - 1
               objReport.Database.Tables(intCounter1).ApplyLogOnInfo(ConInfo)
Next

For intCounter1 = 1 To objReport.Database.Tables.Count

Crystal arrays are indexed from 1 so using 0 may cause problems

objReport.Database.Tables is zero based in my application.

I resolved the issue.  Apparently CR is useing the 2005 SQL Native Client.  After downloading and installing on eah machine the app works fine.

FYI - I believe the Native client requires a license from MS to be legal.

Crystal doesn't.  The native client is a MS client.  The license is from MS.
Unless they have released a license free version.  We started down that path with Crystal 8 and decided we didn't need to buy 5-600 licenses that had to be installed and updated.

You don't need sql native client in order to run a report based on stored procedure. It is a developer choice what connection type will be used. Change the connection to OLDE DB SQLServer and the report will work fine.
