Subject: [Vantage] db logon problem with Crystal 8 Web Server
I'm in the process of setting up the Crystal Web Server. I have one problem
that I've not made any real inroads into yet; when I try to refresh the
report data, I'm prompted to log onto the database. I don't know where this
is set up, or what user name & password I need. Anyone know how to turn it
off / configure it securely?
Thanks for any help.
P.S. while I'm setting this up, I'm running a pretty good 2nd best solution
to distribute reports - Seagate have recently released a .pdf export routine
that plugs into crystal, so I'm manually running my reports every morning
and distributing them on our server. Not ideal, but the information is
If you want the .pdf export routine, go to
http://community.seagatesoftware.com/updates/default.asp and do a search on
your version of Crystal. I think it works with 7 and 8, but I'm not sure,
might be for 8 only.
