Using Subreport with a different database connection

Using Subreport with a different database connection

I have a report with a subreport. The main report runs against SQL server, but then needs to look up data on an Oracle database using a subreport.

All works perfectly well in Crystal Developer but when I load onto Crystal Reports Server The database configuration dialog box only allows connection to single datasource.

How can I tell it to use two datasources

Thank you


RE: Using Subreport with a different database connection

We are not using Crystal Reports server, but the full BI suite and it allows multiple data sources. I know when you look at the database configuration, if you have multiple data sources, there will be a drop down combo box to look at the other data sources.

RE: Using Subreport with a different database connection

Which version of CRS are you using? Is the subreport On Demand or does it always show?

Thanks for comments.
It was me being silly. Kray4660 was spot on, CRS has a drop down and I needed to set up each connection.
