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?
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
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.
Hi,I'm semi-new to crystal reports & sql server and what i want is toextract data from a sql server file. I've been able to connect to sqlserver directly and get the info. i need but is there a way to just openthe data file (in crystal reports) without making a server connection?TIA
Has anyone had any luck getting Crystal Reports 8.5 to work with theSql Server 2000?I keep getting a "Unable to open Database" error.

i'm designing reports in crystal reports 7.0 using sql server 7.0 in crystal reports design environment( without using any type of DSN). Front end is VB 6.0.
on installation of VB package and running reports, it produces error 'pdssql.dll not found' and 'Database dll not found'.
dll required for 32 bit, 'p2ssql.dll' is registered on the system.
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:
I am trying to print a Crystal Report, using VB5 and SQL Server 6.5.
Below is the code. I've put asteriks next to the line of code that fails.
The odd thing is that it works perfectly on my manager's workstation, but fails on mine.
The error message is "20599 Cannot open SQL Server"
And, I've tested my password and it works fine.
Thank you in advance!!!!!!!!

i have a strange problem ..., with crystal reports for Visual Studio 2005.
With same report i have this problem.
i make an upgrade from MSDE to Express and with the same app i have this beaver
The report is faster with data insert with MSDE (5 to 10 sec)
The report is very slow with data insert with Express (1,30 min to 2:20 min)
The same app, the same server the same report ...
This is strange ...
I have a stored procedure in SQL Server that I am trying to attach to a Crystal Report. When I try to attach the procedure, I get the attached error message. I have few more procedure that are working correctly. The only difference between those and this one is a procedure call... in this procedure, I call another procedure.
Any help you could provide is appreciated. E-mail me if you need further information.
I 'm having a problem running Crystal Reports 6 with SQL Server 7.
When I enter in a date it gives me an error.
(using the format for 6.5) yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.fff
Wne I run a report using 6.5 , it shows me how to write the dates
but in SQL Server 7 there is no guidelines on how to write the dats,
Can anyone help,!!
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.
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.

I have a problem when trying to create reports using Crystal Reports and SQL Server Compact 3.5. The report displays the Column Headers but no information. Is there any good walk throughs for creating reports from SQL Server Compact 3.5 using Crystal Reports.
Hello, this is my first time posting here.
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.
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?
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?
Can any one tell me where can I find good online help for Crystal Reports for learning?
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.
Thanks in advance..
THE TIME PORTION OF THE DATE/TIME IS NOT DISPLAYING IN CRYSTAL 8.5
IT SEES THE DATE...BUT NOT THE TIME
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)

what are the good resources for crystal reports.
Also is it something which is difficult to work with ? Suggestion, experiences and notes please.
I exported a column of type float to SQL Server using DTS. In Crystalreports, it 'sees' the column as a string! Is 'float' the best type touse? Must I create a formula field in CR to 'correct' for this?

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.
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..
