Brian...this is way out on a limb because I've not used ReCrystallize or very much ODBC from Crystal for that matter but....does ReCrystallize auto-startup any services that run in the background? If so with other applications I have occasionally had issues with the logon credentials for services and needed to give them an Administrator login. A long shot but easy to experiment with just incase.

Subject: [Vantage] Conncecting to ODBC through ASP - ReCrystallize - Vantage 6.1
Since my Crystal Enterprise Server is dying and I can't get the new
one working I'm trying a different application to distribute my
There is a product called ReCrystallize that has a "Wizard" that you
run each rpt through. It creates the ASP code to call the report
through the Web Server.
I'm having problems with this connecting to my ODBC connection.
If I try a direct connection by trying to use database info in a
parameter lookup I get the following error.
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 5 (MERANT
3.60 32-BIT Progress SQL92 v9.1D).
/accounting/Labor Edit by Office Dept-parameters.asp, line 38
If I let the code try to open the DB through the embedded Crystal
Viewer I get the following.
ReCrystallize Warning: Unable to connect to data source using the
Server/ODBC data source:Progress91D
Please Verify the database user passowrd in this ASP file.
I get that once for each table in the report.
In the wizard it has a step that asks you for the ODBC logon
credentials and pulls most of it from the Rpt you are working with.
I just add the password.
Along with this error I get another dialog:
CRAXDRT Error Occured on Server. -2147192184 : Server has not yet
Has anyone used ReCrystallize to distribute reports?
Has anyone used ASP code to connect to the DB?
I have support with ReCrystallize but according to them, they've
never had a customer try to use it with a Progress DB before.
Keep in mind I know very little about ASP.
