Cannot open SQL server

Cannot open SQL server

Cannot open SQL server

I made a report in Crystal report 7.
I connected it with Active Data to a MS SQL view.
In CR7 everything works fine.
I have on my computer Win2000 and IIS. So CR7 installed also the Crystal Report Web server.
The first time I opened the report with my browser worked fine.
The second time I got the error: Cannot open SQL server.
I retried in CR7 and the same report worked fine and refreshes data normaly.
After one hour I tried again with my IE5 browser and again it was OK.  
I tried to refresh the page and i gor again the same error.
Why the error comes and goes?

RE: Cannot open SQL server

It sounds like the report has saved data, which makes it seem like the report is connecting the first time.  It probably isn't connecting at all via the browser, but showing you saved data.

When run from the browser you have to provide the connection information.  You should be able to find the appropriate syntax for this command in the web administrators guide.

I think the command wll use Connect, LogOnServer, or SetLogonInfo
