Distributing a Report As An App And Bypassing SQL Server Log On

Distributing a Report As An App And Bypassing SQL Server Log On

Distributing a Report As An App And Bypassing SQL Server Log On

(OP)
Hello All,

I have been trying to figure this out all day.  Is it possible to use a feature in Crystal Reports 7 that will allow me to store a password in the compiled report so the user doesn't have to enter it everytime he/she wants to refresh the 'print' data?  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Eric

Not if you are using the "compiled report" feature of CR7.  If you are creating a true application, like in VB, you can store the password, etc in the code.
