VB6 Crystal Reports Logon failed

Hey guys,

I am an intermediate user of VB6 and a beginner to Crystal. I am using the Reports Wizard to connect to my DB via ODBC, it asks for username and password, I enter it and it displays the table. I map the tables and it auto finds the Primary Key and Forign Keys. I chose the columns I want to display and I run the VB6 program. It returns error:

---------------------------
Crystal Report Viewer
---------------------------
Logon failed.
Details: 28000:[Sybase][ODBC Driver][SQL Anywhere]Invalid user ID or password [Database Vendor Code: -103 ]
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------


But the username and password are correct. If they weren't, I would have never been able to see the tables in the first place. Going crazy over here. What am I missing?

What version of Crystal?

What code are you using for the reports?

CR v11.5

Not sure what you mean by "What code are you using for the reports?" I used the report wizard to build a very simple report.

For the report to display you need to add code to assign the report to the viewer and assign the logon information and any parameters the report needs.

Oh, I didnt know that :)

Can you give me an example of what this code might look like?

Where would it be? Form Load?

Depends on how the report is requested?
It could be on a form load.
I have also written apps where the code loading the information was subroutine on the form or even code on another form that works on the crViewer

Is there a form with the CRViewer?

Do you have references to crViewer.dll?

Form Load says this:

Screen.MousePointer = vbHourglass
CRViewer1.ReportSource = Report
CRViewer1.ViewReport
Screen.MousePointer = vbDefault

WHere does the object Report gets its value?

You don't need both CR ActiveX references.  Remove the second one

Good question :) I designed the report on the fly with the Wizard in VB. I havent really given it a "value"

Thanks! I will remove the other reference.
