Crystal Reports Active X Designer not finding SQL ODBC in subreport

Earlier this week, I put out a question about combining DataSources in Crystal XI for an Oracle database and a SQL database.  I changed the report design and used the Oracle ODBC for the main report and the SQL Server ODBC to bring the table Inventory_Map into the subreport. I then used shared variables to pass the calculations from the Sub to the Main.  Worked great. Now we are running it through a Crystal Reports Viewer and it is blowing up with the following error:

Error code at invocation of location 80020009
Source: Crystal Reports Active X Designer
Error Description : The table Inventory_Map could not be found.

IS this on the machine with Crystal installed?

Yes, but we're running it through an ERP called Profit Key. It has the Crystal Viewer.

Does that application support Crystal subreports?

Yes, it does.  We have over 50 examples and all are working.  We have never combined a SQL database and an Oracle database before.

I don't know unless the application can't handle 2 data sources.

Does it handle reports written using one source for both SQL and Oracle databases?

Good idea. I checked and it will not run it for the SQL ODBC at all.  I get the same error. How could I easily convert the SQL to Access?  I'm sure this will work.

The easy way would be to just link the tables from Access
