Lotus native driver connectivity

Lotus native driver connectivity

Lotus native driver connectivity


Running SI 7.5 - all up to date.

I am trying to set up native connectivity to a Lotus domino database, which I have done no problem. I can use the Data Explorer in Crystal reports 8 to access the required DBs, but in order to get to them I have to type in the notes account password twice. I think the 1st prompt is from the ODBC manager, and the 2nd prompt is from the Lotus security model.
Typing in the password twice when prompted allows the report to be run locally in Reports.

Problems arise when reports are scheduled from the Info Desktop, because they just sit there processing indefinitely.
I think that although I specify logon credentials for the report, it is prompting for the 2nd password also, and there is no way to type it in (no dialog box appears).

Any ideas on how I can get around this?

I am in the process of trying the report via ODBC instead to get things moving.
