I just moved to a new server,  We use Crystal Reports.  I installed the Crystal Reports XI and then installed ver 4 and then the ver 6 patch so that it now opens on Windows Server 2008 R2.  I can open an old report and can get it to prompt.  I try to tell it where the Access database is.  It can locate the database.  However, I get stuck because it wants a username and login.  Not sure what this is.  I didnt create the Access database with a username and login.  In my old system it did not ask for this.  The access database is an extract from another system and was recreated using the same routines.  What information is it looking for in that login.  I tried my Windows 2008 Login the login to my main database application and nothing works..
