JNDI Name not found


  I have Crystal Reports 2008 installed on my laptop, which is Window 7 64 bit OS.
I also have the Oracle 11g client installed on it.

Now, i have created the ODBC connections to point to the Oracle database and created some crystal reports. They run fine on my machine.

But when these reports are deployed to a server (NOT a BO server), which is already established to run the crystal reports, it errors out, with the message "JNDI Name not found".
I have gathered that the driver is set to ODBC on my machine, but the server is expecting a JDBC driver set up.

Can someone kindly help me set it up on my machine so that these reports work seamlessly on the server?

Thank You!

YOu need to edit the reports to use a JBDC connection.

Thanks! How do i set this JDBC connection on my laptop?
I don't know.  I assume there is a JDBC driver available somewhere.

How were the other reports set up?
