I have a number of Crystal reports from the same VB.net program that are not accepting / transferring / referencing the database details for the connection.  Attached is the screen shot of the error message and the code that is used to populate the connection.

Can someone please shed some light on the issue?

I don't see the error.

What changed recently?

Did the database password change?  expire?

The error is that within the code it is assigning all the relevant data to the variable to open the connection to the database. Now as you may see with the connection when loading the Crystal report there is no Table name and no password.

Nothing has changed other than updates to the PC.

Database Password hasn't changed or expired

mlmcc,

Thanks for the response. I have followed the article and all the links to other opinions etc,  Still no joy. Im at the point now that I will be rewriting the reports and then the software to see if that there is anything in there.  That is if anyone doesnt have any better ideas
