Hello All,
How can I connect crystal reports to the database through windows authentication.Is there a way other than creating an ODBC connection.
Thanks all.

You can use the ado connection with an integrated user account.  This of course relies upon that user having db access under their windows account as well.

In Crystal, it is the one labeled "OLE DB (ADO)"

When you configure the connection use:
OLE db for SQL server
For Connection Information, tick the "integrated security" box and then enter your sql server and database name

Don't type in a user name and password though.
