Crystal Report Embedded in aspx With Two ODBC Connections

I have a Crystal Report developed by someone in house that references two different ODBC connections that are created using Clarion's TopSpeed ODBC connector to connect to *.tps flat files. I need to set this report up embedded in an aspx page OR I need to access the data directory from asp.net c# and rebuild the report in a gridview.

I can't connect to the odbc connectors no matter what I do. I've scoured the internet and not found too much help with this.

Has anyone done this before? Can you point me to a site that explains it?

What version of Crystal?

The versions I am familiar with only really support a single database connection.  Multiple may work in them but the SDK only supports 1 connection so there is no way to pass 2 connections to the report.

The recommended solution has always been use a subreport for one of the connections.

The newest versions may support it but then you will need to be using the versioin that is built for Visual Studio.

I'm using the one for VS 2010 - if I run it purely from Crystal Reports, the report runs fine. When I embed it in an aspx page is when it blows up.

The problem is the SDK doesn't support 2 data sources so there is no way to set the second source.

Okay, maybe I'll see if I can ditch the Crystal Report and attempt to connect to multiple ODBC connections directly from asp.net. Thanks for your help, mlmcc, - always on the ball!
