Unable to access first record


Need help urgently here.

I encounter an inconsistent error here.
Sometimes when I run the same report but with different paramenter values, e.g. Invoice number, when the CRViewer forms loads up and tries to display the report, the following error messages pops up:

1) Seagate Crystal Reports:Database Error
     Unable to access first record!

2) Crystal Report Viewer:
     SQL Server error

If I attempt to close the form and reload again, and it works fine. I wonder what kind of mistake have I made in my codes? or is there any patches for such cases.

I tried unselecting under the Report->Report Options->"Use Indexes or Server for Speed"
