Notes and connecting with Crystal

Notes and connecting with Crystal

Notes and connecting with Crystal

(OP)
I have created a new view in my notes database and am trying to access it via crystal reports in creating a new connection.  The view is not visible in the database expert dialog box.  Can anyone tell me why?  this is the first time I've had a problem and am probably missing something really elementary.

RE: Notes and connecting with Crystal

Is your new view a private view ? There may be an issue with that.

Pascal.

(OP)
No. should have mentioned that. Definitely not private.  In fact copied it from an existing standard view and made alterations.

RE: Notes and connecting with Crystal

I suppose the existing view is accessible via Crystal ?

Pascal.

RE: Notes and connecting with Crystal

Arrgghh !
I mean the one you used to make a copy of, that one is "visible" by Crystal Reports, right ?

Pascal.

RE: Notes and connecting with Crystal

(OP)
Yes it is

RE: Notes and connecting with Crystal

Okay, so it's not a view type issue, nor a view access issue.
Is the first column sorted ?
And is there a Default View in the database design ?

Pascal.

RE: Notes and connecting with Crystal

(OP)
Hey Pascal,

Thanks for sticking with me on this.

Yes the first column is actually a modified date.
@Date(@Modified)
and it is categorized and sorted. But this is true of the default view as well so that can't be the difference.
