Info Desktop - Subreport Data Sources Not Recognised

Info Desktop - Subreport Data Sources Not Recognised

Good morning,

I use Seagate Info Desktop 7.0, and am having a problem I've never seen before.

I have a main report with multiple subreports (3 in total) which each point to a different ODBC.  When I attempt to define the report in Info Desktop, it only gives me an opportunity to enter a password for one of them.  If I attempt to schedule the report, it then fails with an "incorrect parameter" error.

I have attempted rebuilding the report from scratch and re-scheduling with no results.  If I run the report manually through Crystal Reports, it will ask for all three passwords and run.

Any ideas?

Do you have all of the ODBC sources set up on the server?
