Report with parameters will not open database

Report with parameters will not open database

Report with parameters will not open database

(OP)
I am working with CR8.5, VB6, SQL7.  I do not have RDC.  I have designed a number of reports in Crystal Reports and they work fine.  I have written a small VB routine to call these reports.  I have connected to the database using ODBC.
I can run reports from within VB that do not have a pararmeter, but if a parameter is required after I give the parameter, an error message appears stating that the server is not open.  How do I give the userid and password to the server after the parameter?
Thank you.

RE: Report with parameters will not open database

Which integration method are you using?

If not sure see the general forum for CR, and check out the FAQ on "Questions should include.."

I am using OCX to attach the report

RE: Report with parameters will not open database

You give it before report is launched, by using the Connect or LogOnInfor property.
