I have created a report with version 8.5, the data is accessed via ODBC connecting to a Progress database. The report is currently taking 3 hours to run so need to schedule the report to run over night. When I enter the time parameters I am asked for User name and password as secure database, I then press print and the window is placed on the taskbar. Each night at 9 pm a back up is done of the data and the server is down for a maximum of 2 hours, so the server is back working before mid night. The report does not run, is this because the connection has been lost, are there any other reasons. I have tested the report in the day and it works fine, or is there any way to populate the username and password at runtime so that I can use the scheduler in Win 2000 to run the report after the database has backed up
