Passing userid using ASP to a crystal report

Passing userid using ASP to a crystal report

Passing userid using ASP to a crystal report

I am using crystal reports for the first time and I have a problem and need your help .  We have online reports which are generated dynamically . We are using ASP code and Lot of user's logon using their userid and access their reports . Is there a way I can pass this userid to the crystal reports and ask it to fetch the records for that particular userid only .

Right now the table that is used to show the results has more than one user's information and sometimes pops all the results thereby creating security issues .

Please advice
Thanks for your help

RE: Passing userid using ASP to a crystal report

The code below is on one of my asp pages.  I pass the name of a field that has an area code (1,2,3 etc), and a set of values from a multiple select box ("1,5,8") and I build an SQL statement that limits the results in the report to just the selected area's.

Hope this helps!

'Check the passed variables to see if an SQL string needs to be built
strSQL = ""
'Process the Area selection if any, skip if *All* is selected
'Session("Area") is the field name of the area in the database
'Request.Form("lstArea") is the result of a multiple selection dropdown box
'ie. "1,2,5,7,9"
If Len(Session("Area")) <> 0 and Request.Form("lstArea") <> "All" Then
    strTemp1 = Request.Form("lstArea")
    intJ = 0
    For intI = 1 to Len(strTemp1)
        If Mid(strTemp1,intI,1) = "," Then
            intJ = intJ + 1
        End IF
    For intK = 1 to intJ
        intL = Instr(strTemp1,",")
        strTemp2 = Mid(strTemp1, 1,intL - 1)
        strTemp1 = Mid(strTemp1,intL + 2)
        If Len(strSQL) <> 0 then strSQL = strSQL & " OR "
        strSQL = strSQL & "{" & Session("Area") & "} = " & strTemp2
    If Len(strSQL) <> 0 then strSQL = strSQL & " OR "
    strSQL = strSQL & "{" & Session("Area") & "} = " & strTemp1
End If
' Set up the next line to modify the data to display in the report    
IF len(strSQL) <> 0 Then
    session("oRPT").recordselectionformula = strSQL
End If
On Error Resume Next                                                  
If IsObject(session("oPageEngine")) Then                              
     Set Session("oPageEngine") = Nothing
End If
Set Session("oPageEngine") = Session("oRpt").PageEngine
