Using Crystal Reports With SQL Server Everywhere Edition

I have been evaluating the Microsoft SQL Server Everywhere Edition and have been trying to create a Crystal Report from it. When creating the connection from Crystal I have selected the OLE DB provider supplied by Microsoft with the product and then been presented with the 'Data Source' screen. On entering the path to my .sdf file I get an error reading :-

Opening a database as read only requires a temp path to be specified. [,,,Db name,,]

Can you tell me what is required to be entered here?

Also - I only have the Express Edition of SQL Server 2005 which won't open an Anywhere Edition database - is there a way of getting the mobile tools for use on the desktop?

URGENT: REPORTS Not Working In SQL Report Srvr && Crystal Reports (moved Server)
Reports not working at all:
Need to move full ASp.Net application(VS.Net 2003) /SQL Server 2000 DB to another machine. The Web application & its SQL Database is successfully moved and functioning but am unable to access any of the reports from within it. The
reports are in: A) SQL server report server & B) Crystal reports
For A)-SQL SRVR-RPT SRVR: Installed SQL Server2005  Express version- with reporting srvr (advance mgt). The report server is working well- from IIS i can open both http://..reports and http://...reportserver links without error.
But when i click on a link in the ASP.Net application it gives error: /HRNE_REPORTS/rpt_employees does not exist( rsitemnotfound) .
1.In http://..reports configration I have made a folder HRNET_REPORTS. But how do i put the individual reports? There is no .RDL file in the application folder only .aspx files for the reports exist.
2.Do i need to restore the two reporting server databases from the old machine to the new one and have this new 2005 reporting server use these 2 databases instead? If YES  - then i hope sql express' reporting server will be able to point to the OLD (sql 2000) database (restored with replace option)??
For B)- CRYSTAL REPORTS: Have not installed anything special on the new machine.
The reports give some key problem (Crystal decisions...key..)- I can tell u later the exact error.
Since i dont have VS.Net and crystal reports 9 softwares but i think i can have 'Busines Objects XI software' - Will installing the latest 'Business Objects- Crystal reports' solve this??NEW MACHINE: windows XP-professional(so could'nt install sql 2000).; SQL express 2005

Comparison Of SQL Server Reporting Services To Access Reports, Crystal Reports, Cognos Or Other Options
Hello SQL Server Experts, Data Analysts, and Report Writers et al:

re: Reporting Options with SQL Server

I wanted to propose an offshoot to the pryor thread:

Would anyone take a stab at comparing Access Reports, Crystal Reports,
Cognos or other options to all the Reporting Services and its components offered as part ofSQL Server, especially as to extracting data from SQL Server into a report format?

I guess this is a far as capabilites, ease of use, limitations, and especially formatting
or presentation of the end report product?

Thank you to all, and I hope this is a beneficial discussion to others.

Analysis Server And Crystal Reports
Anybody ever done any Crystal Reports based off an Analysis Services database?

I got tasked with what I thought was a simple job of developing some crystal reports from a sql server database, only to find out that the data source is actually an OLAP cube.

Crystal appears to be very limited in its ability to create and format reports from OLAP datasources. Is it possible to treat this like a regular datasource in order to get more reporting functionality? I am really not interested in the pivot functionality, since these will just be canned reports.


P.S. If you want to know why the data is in a cube rather than a reporting database, the answer is "Nobody asked me". :rolleyes:

SQL Server, Access, VB6, ADO, Crystal Reports Integration
Hello everyone,

I need to create a Crystal Report based on a SQL Server database. However, life is never that easy…

The report needs data to be taken from the database, manipulated and reported upon. Doing this manipulation within CR will make the report take far too long to produce so I thought I would create a temporary table within SQL Server and manipulate that.

Cannot get Create Table permission!

Plan B is to use VB / ADO to extract the data (about 1 million rows) from SQL Server and write it to a local Access database that I can manipulate as much as I want. Crystal Reports can then report on the Access data.

•Is this the best way to go?
•I know how to use ADO to connect to n Access database but how do I connect to a SQL Server database?
•I think I will need to write a single Select to build the SQL Server recordset but will I need to write each row individually, using a Do Unitl loop, to get the data into the Access recordset?

Many thanks in advance.

Microsoft SQL Server Express And Crystal Reports 8.5
Hi,  Simple question really - Can I use Crystal Reports v8.5 to attach to databases in SQL Server Express and generate reports?  I have done a lot of searches in these forums and using Google and I believe it is possible but if someone could confirm this it would help a lot - I'm in the specification stage of a project and would like to use SQL Sever Express for it.

Login Failure Issue With Crystal Reports Connecting To SQL Server 2005
Hi All,

My  application  uses  "crystal reports" control to integrate some reports that can be viewed from within the application.
I'm getting a login failed (due to bad password SQL State 8) error when I bring up the report from within the application. The report runs fine outside the application with the same username password.
- I've checked several times to make sure that I'm passing the correct username/password from the application.
-  All letters in the password are lower case. There is not case-sensitive issue.
- I printed the username and password on a pop-up to see what values are passed , and they are correct.
- A single test page that uses the same version of "Crystal Reports" control , using the same username/password, brings up the same report works fine.
I guess , my question is:
   Is there a way to trace the login failure event on the SQL Server side to see what is the value of the password that is being sent by crystal reports control?
I'm using Crystal Reports XI with sp2.
SQL Server 2005.
I appreciate the help.

Converting Crystal Reports To SSRS Reports
My issue is with converting multi-value parameters:
In Crystal Reports, you can set a parameter to accept multiple vales (Discrete, Range or Discrete and Range).
As an example:
I have a database table with a column called ID.
I can create a parameter called param_id and set the options of the parameter to "Allow multiple range values".
With this setup, I can limit the result set of the report by comparing the param_id parameter to the ID column in the database. Because param_id is a multi-value range parameter, I can pass it the following data:
1 - 50
60 - 80
150 - 127
This will only return results within those ranges.

Does anyone know if SSRS provides this kind of functionality?

Crystal Reports
I am working on creating Crystal Reports from a SQL database.

In CR you can define a multiple range parameter i.e. 1-10, 100-200, 300-400 and Cr will filer records that satisfy this criteria.

How can I transfer this functionality using a stored procedure?

Crystal Reports/SQL 7
A long shot but someone may have experienced same problem. We are using Crystal Info to run reports against a SQL 7 database. Reports that usually take 1 or 2 minutes to run are taking up to 15 minutes to run. The database is fine ie you run the query through the query analyser and it runs in 1 or 2 minutes. Any ideas... I've spoken to Seagate but not making much progress.

SQL In Crystal Reports
I'm new to SQL but have quite happily been using Crystal Reports without it until now.

I am creating a letter template and it has the name at the top then the address



There is always an address 1, but maybe not a 3 or a 4, and aparently we dont want any line gaps to show, so I figured i should use an isnull to eliminate the line and to move the other address line up?

Not sure what to put though, any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help :o)

Need Help Getting Crystal Reports 10 Working
Hi all-

I am trying to get Crystal Reports 10 to work with SQL Server 2000 on Windows 2000 server. I can get the software installed. However when I attempt to access either the user web interface or the admin web interface I get cannot access page error messages and nothing appears on the webpage. We have MS IIS 5 as our web server/intranet. I checked the settings for IIS and made sure that Crystal can use the different types of web content pages. I even tried to setup the virtual directory according to Crystal support. However it still does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

MS OLAP & Crystal Reports
Okay, this is a weird one, and Crystal tech support has been unhelpful.

I've got an OLAP cube that I'm trying to access via crystal reports. Wouldn't be my first choice, but it's a licensing thing. Anyway, the data source dialog for crystal keeps coming back with "Failed to open OLAP cube", and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. If anyone is familiar with doing this, I'd love some tips on the proper syntax of the options on that dialog, specifically the 'server type' section of the dialog.

Thanks in advance..

SQL2000 RS Vs Crystal Reports 9
Hello everybody! I have a SQL2000 with 25CAL. For reporting, I currently use Crystal Reports 9, and I need to create the same reports every week. I'd rather asked the end-use to refresh the report but the company does not want to buy multiple Crystal Reports CAL.

The company has no funds for a major reporting solution.
I have read that RS 2000 is free, provided I already have the licences.

Please help me to know:
1. Is RS 2000 is free, provided I already have the licences.
If yes, how can I get it (MSDN?)
2. Will I be able to use Visual Studio Express edition (the free one) to create the reports?
If not, is there any cost-effective alternative.
Are there any links/helps/guides on this?

Crystal Repors is a very good tool but I do not want to run the same reports every single week. I'd rather have the end-users run it.

Thank you for all the suggestions and comments!

Comparison With Crystal Reports
I showed my boss the functionality of ad hoc reporting in SRSS and he likes it. He asked me if we could completely move away from Crystal Reports (CR) to SRSS.

Does anyone have any issues with SRSS that didnt exist in CR.

One question i have is programmability capabilities. Some time back i had to make a very complex report in CR. I create a table in the dataset. Designed the report to pull data from that table and the table was being populated through some VB.NET code. So the users will open a GUI and hit RUN, which is when i will populate the table and show the report. You can assume that populating the table required complex programming and couldnt have been done through user defined functions in a report.

I dont suppose stuff like this can be done in SRSS?

Crystal Reports Running Slow ??

I have been tapped to help with fixing a reporting tool. We have a Sql Server database/crystal reports(10) setup. I havent had the chance to look at the tables in the DB yet, but I was told that aggregate tables were used. In my past experience with crystal reports, we used database views to feed crystal reports (in Oracle). I was thinking that I could somehow use views instead of tables and then try to re-index the base tables and compile satitics (if theres such a thing with Sql Server). I was also going to look into bottlenecking and locking (table locking as opposed to row or page locking for the lookup reduce overhead on the main tables) but, I'm not sure if it'll make a difference since this is just a demo server with no major traffic hitting it yet.

The question is, does anyone have any experience with crystal reports running slow with Sql Server, what should I look out for??
