Convert Database Driver from Access to DB2

Convert Database Driver from Access to DB2

Convert Database Driver from Access to DB2

Essentials:  Crystal 8.5
Database(s): Access97, DB2

I have a bunch of reports I created on my test database (Access 97).  Now, I want them to hit my "active" DB2 database.  All the field names are the same.  I use the Set Location and Convert Database Driver commands to correspond to my new tables and driver, respectively....and when I go to refresh the report I get no records.  There's nothing in the select statement that falls away or is changed in the convert.

If I start from scratch, I  get data from the DB2 no problem.

Can someone please give me a quick outline on what I am missing or what to check?  The thought of rebuilding all these reports is well, not a pretty one.

Thanks for your help,
