SQL Server 2005 Crystal Report is unable to connect: Incorrect log on parameters

Posted on 2014-01-30
Last Modified: 2014-02-02
Hey guys,

I have about 10 crystal reports that I created in VS 2008 C# version of Crystal Reports.  I have a code snippet attached that I run 5 reports by only changing the report name.  They use the same stored procedure and the same code except for the report name.  Two of the reports give the error:  Unable to connect: Incorrect log on parameters.

There must be something wrong with the reports but they work perfectly when run in the Main Report Preview.

What version of Crystal?
By the code I am guessing it is CR9

Do the 2 reports that fail have a subreport?

mlmcc!!!  Thanks for the post!!

They were all built with whatever CR comes with VS2008 C#.
No subreport on any of the 5 reports.  I can just change the report name in the code and three will run correctly and two of them won't.  They all have the same data source which is a stored procedure in sql server 2005.

Can you open the reports in the designer and try a VERIFY DATABASE?

Yes, and it shows all the data when I run it in the designer mode.  I am creating a new stored procedure.  Maybe I just missed a field in the one I am currently using.

Thanks for your assistance!!!!!!!!!!  Keep thinking!!!!

I created a new stored procedure and created a new label but am still getting the same error.
I changed the name of the report to one that works and it still does.  The only thing different in the procedure is the report name.  :-(

Keep Thinking!!!

What I did to create the report was to replace the fields on a report that was working with the new ones I needed.  I haven't a clue why that would work and the new ones wouldn't.
Thanks for the assist!!!
