SetLogOnInfo - ODBC in CR 8.5 - Posting Again. (Please Help)

SetLogOnInfo - ODBC in CR 8.5 - Posting Again. (Please Help)

(OP)
Hi,

The setLogonInfo method used in ASP pages takes in the DSN name, the database name, userid and password. For instance,

crtable.SetLogonInfo "Pubs Sample Database", "pubs", cstr(userid), cstr(password)

When I develop a report based on the titles table of the pubs database, I choose the ODBC pointing to the Pubs Sample Database and Pubs database. I then strip off the pubs.dbo

Now when I mention a different value in the setlongoninfo method - say

crtable.SetLogonInfo "Pub Test", "Pubs_Duplicate", cstr(userid), cstr(password)

I cannot view any information in the report because it originally points to the ODBC - "Pubs Sample Database".

So how can strip off the ODBC name from the report as well other than the pubs.dbo ? Though the databases are different, the tables, its fields and the views are the same.

Hope to hear a solution for this. I really hope someone replies to this query.

Padmaja.

If I understand correctly, you run your report from your ASP but you're not seeing ANY records?

RE: SetLogOnInfo - ODBC in CR 8.5 - Posting Again. (Please Help)

Also, do your 2 database have the same location?

I am able to see the records shown in the report viewer when the ODBC is Pubs Sample Database. But when I point the ASP page to the Pub Test ODBC and the Pubs_Duplicate database, then I do not get to see any information in the report viewer because the report when designed points to pubs sample database ODBC

So how I strip off the ODBC name as well ?

Tables are the same.

Hope to hear from you soon.
Padmaja.

I'll try to find a solution, but in the meantime, search at http://www.crystaldecisions.com/search/ for keywords ODBC and SetLogonInfo.  There are a few documents that might help you solve your problem...

Can I mail you the report and the ASP file that pulls information from the Pubs database. I did all the searching, but I shall search again.

Do reply if I can send the files. My email address is coolpersona@hotmail.com

Padmaja.
