Multiple ODBC Connections
Posted on 2013-05-13
We have several Mission Critical reports currently written in Crystal Reports 10 that utilize an ODBC connection to an MS SQL 2008 R2 DB. The person who knows CR10 is no longer available. We have a new person that is a little familiar with CR12, but not enough to try and update the older reports.
I was lead to believe that the CR10 Reports and CR12 Reports cannot or should not use the same ODBC Connection. Is it possible to create another ODBC connection to the same server/SQL DB under a different name without adversely affecting the original? I hesitate to just do it, because we cannot afford to break the CR10 Reports.
