I have several crystal reports that I have put into ASPX pages using the crystal report viewer and crystal report source.

I have two differnet databases, One that I can only get to via ODBC. One that is a local MS-SQL server 2008.

When I launch the reports that use the ODBC/DSN everything works fine. but I can not get to the local Database.

Here is the code behind that I am using to provide the login credentials.

This does not work for local db. The error i get is db login failed. But it works fine in my designer.

    Protected Sub form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles form1.Load
        Dim ConnInfo As New ConnectionInfo

        With ConnInfo
            .ServerName = "web01"
            .DatabaseName = "iwonline"
            .UserID = "sa"
            .Password = "password"

        End With

        For Each cnInfo As TableLogOnInfo In Me.CrystalReportViewer1.LogOnInfo
            cnInfo.ConnectionInfo = ConnInfo
        Next
    End Sub


This DOES work for the DSN connections...

    Protected Sub form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles form1.Load
        Dim ConnInfo As New ConnectionInfo

        With ConnInfo
            .ServerName = "Netsuite.com"
            .DatabaseName = ""
            .UserID = "me@mynet.net"
            .Password = "password"

        End With

        For Each cnInfo As TableLogOnInfo In Me.CrystalReportViewer1.LogOnInfo
            cnInfo.ConnectionInfo = ConnInfo
        Next
    End Sub

What connection method are you using for the local database?
Do you have an ODBC connectionto it?
