Crystal Server - ODBC Setup

Crystal Server - ODBC Setup

Crystal Server - ODBC Setup

OK i download a trial copy of crystal server 2011.
server is running, i download client tools and demo of crystal reports enterprise.  get an error that  there are no usable data sources, i look and look in the CCM, cannot find where to add a Data Source.... keep on looking download client tools and use Business View Manager... alas i found something i could use... i setup data connections and still no where to be found outside of the business view manager.... spent all night looking for it and i give up... i've tried to google the answer many of times and come up with nothing... am i crazy or is it hidden and no one is sharing?


RE: Crystal Server - ODBC Setup

OK learned some stuff...
after some more googling...

i have to create a universe using the information design tool.
im currently RTFM on that subject
if i find a useful article i will post.


RE: Crystal Server - ODBC Setup

OK im almost there but frustrated with these universes
it looks like i have to build queries but it doesnt really provide me with the tools to build them
and report builder wants the query built beforehand.
