By pass database logon information in crystal reports accessed using C#

We have built a crystal report which has college id as a dynamic parameter  field. Based on the selection of the college_id the report gets populated. We are loading this report through C#.Net.

We have used the below code to set the log on info for the tables in the report
        for (int i = 0; i < crTables.Count; i++)
        {
            crTable = crTables[i];
            crTableLogOnInfo = crTable.LogOnInfo;
            crTableLogOnInfo.ConnectionInfo =
            crConnectionInfo;
            crTable.ApplyLogOnInfo(crTableLogOnInfo);
        }

Open in new window

The issue we have is the when we load the report it asks for the database user name and password as the dynamic parameter field has a different data source. So is there a way to set LogOnInfo for that dynamic parameter??

Does the report have a subreport?

Where are you setting the crConnectionInfo?

Does the user supplied have database permissions and permissions to all the tables?

No the report does not have a sub report.
I am passing the crConnectionInfo as a parameter to this method having the given code.The crConnectionInfo has the servername,userID and password configured to it.
The user used here is used in multiple applications and has the required permissions.

I misunderstood what you need.

I don't know how to set the logon info for the separate prompt.  That is one of the drawbacks of using multiple datasources, the SDK only relly supports 1 datasource.
