Hello Experts,

I am trying to run a Crystal Report thorugh VB6. Here is my code:

Dim crxApp As CRAXDRT.Application
Dim crxRpt As CRAXDRT.Report


    Set crxApp = New CRAXDRT.Application
    Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Reports\DetailRecpt.rpt")
    crxRpt.ParameterFields(1).AddCurrentValue ("44444") 'testing with trans# 44444


CRViewer.ReportSource = crxRpt
CRViewer.ViewReport

Open in new window


It generates this error:

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


I don't have any login info within my VB code as you can see. I cant seem to figure out the syntax for the connection string. I have successfully used this connection string in the past to connect.

"Driver={SQL Anywhere 10};Password=password;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=user;Data Source=sqlbase;Location=sqlbase"


Any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried using the code you say solved your other issue along the same lines?

m1mcc,

Thanks for your response. The solution I accepted there worked but when I moved the EXE out of my development environment it not generates that logon error. I am sure it's because I dont have any connection string in my code, however I dont know the syntax :/

There is code provided in the other question that should work.  Crystal doesn't use a connection string as such.  

The code is here

Private Sub SetReportLocation(ByRef RepObj As CRAXDRT.Report)

    Dim CrxDDF As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable
    Dim CP As CRAXDRT.ConnectionProperties

    For Each CrxDDF In RepObj.Database.Tables
        Set CP = CrxDDF.ConnectionProperties
        CP.DeleteAll
        CP.Add "Connection String", "Driver={SQL Anywhere 10};Password=password;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=user;Data Source=sqlbase;Location=sqlbase"
    Next

    Set CrxDDF = Nothing
    Set CP = Nothing

End Sub




Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim crxApp As CRAXDRT.Application
Dim crxRpt As CRAXDRT.Report

 SetReportLocation crxRpt


    Set crxApp = New CRAXDRT.Application
    Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Reports\DetailRecpt.rpt")
    crxRpt.ParameterFields(1).AddCurrentValue ("44444") 'testing with trans# 44444


CRViewer.ReportSource = crxRpt
CRViewer.ViewReport


End Sub

Open in new window



Generates:

RunTime error 91

This line

SetReportLocation crxRpt

has to come after you instantiate the report obect

after this line

Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport(App.Path & "\Reports\DetailRecpt.rpt")

That means the connection string is wrong.  You have it set for Integrated Security and the reort probably isn't or the other ay round

CP.Add "ConnectionString", "Driver={SQL Anywhere 10};Uid=user;Pwd=password;DSN=sqlbase;"
