Working With Crystal Subreports www.codeguru.com

I've made a crystal report that contains a subreport. When I have the report on screen and I click it in order to see the subreport, I get the next error from the database (I'm using Oracle provider to connect to the database):"ORA-01017 invalid username/password; logon denied"I have set the connection to the database for the report, but I didn't know that I have to do the same for the subreport.

Problem Deploying Subreports With Main Report social.msdn.microsoft.com

Hi All, Here's my problem. I have an SSRS report with subreports on it. The main report and subreports work fine on my machine when I run the main report. However, when I deploy them to our test server and change the server name of the shared datasource, only the main report brings back data. The subreports show an error of something like "Error in displaying the subreport" for each subreport. The subreports require parameters that I believe I am supplying from the main report. What am I doing wrong? Is it really necessary to deploy the subreports with the main report to the new server. With Crystal Reports, I didn't have to do this. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

How To Connect SQL Server 2000, Crystal Reports 8.5 And Visual Basic 6 www.vbcity.com

Hi guys,I have been using this forum for a while but only joined yesterday to post this information. Like most people I was having great difficulty in getting SQL Server 2000, Crystal Reports 8.5 and Visual Basic 6 to work together to produce reports for the end user. My main problem was the error 'SQL Server has not yet been opened'. This was due to my report having subreports within it, which nobody anywhere has properly explained.As this took a good bit of searching and also my own coding to resolve this I thought I would post the end result on here for anyone else who was having the same difficulties.2 Ways to do this are... Passing a SQL Query to a report or by Passing parameters from a users input.First of all make sure that the Component Crystal Reports Viewer Control has been added to your project. Next make sure the 2 References - Crystal Reports Viewer Control and Crystal Reports 8.5 ActiveX Designer Run-Time Library have been added.Now for the code...Add the following to the general declarations area:Code:     '****************************************************************************************    ' General Declarations for working with Crystal Reports    '****************************************************************************************  Dim crxApp As New CRAXDRT.Application  Dim crxRpt As CRAXDRT.Report  Dim crxTables As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTables  Dim crxTable As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable  Dim crxSubreportObject As CRAXDRT.SubreportObject  Dim crxSubReport As CRAXDRT.Report  Dim crxSections As CRAXDRT.Sections  Dim crxSection As CRAXDRT.Section  Dim crParamDefs As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinitions  Dim crParamDef As CRAXDRT.ParameterFieldDefinitionNext place the following code behind the command button, REMOVING the code Way 1 or Way 2 depending on your application.Code:Private Sub cmdSubmit_Click()     '****************************************************************************************    ' Variables declarations for the Database Connection    '****************************************************************************************  Dim strServerOrDSNName As String  Dim strDBNameOrPath As String  Dim strUserID As String  Dim strPassword As String      strServerOrDSNName = "servername"        'replace servername with your SQL connection server  strDBNameOrPath = "databasename"        'replace databasename with your SQL connection databasename  strUserID = "userid"                    'replace userid with your SQL connection userid  strPassword = "password"                'replace password with your SQL connection password     'Open the report  Set crxApp = New CRAXDRT.Application  Set crxRpt = crxApp.OpenReport("C: est.rpt")     'Set the connection for the report.    'SetLogOnInfo is a deprecated method in CR 9, but still works.    'The suggested method for CR9 is to use the ConnectionProperty object.  crxRpt.Database.Tables(1).SetLogOnInfo strServerOrDSNName, strDBNameOrPath, strUserID, strPassword     'This removes the schema from the Database Table's Location property.  Set crxTables = crxRpt.Database.Tables  For Each crxTable In crxTables      With crxTable           .Location = .Name      End With  NextWay 1 -

**RESOLVED**Crystal Reports / Make Subreport Flow From Page To Page www.vbforums.com

I have a Crystal Report with a number of subreports. One of the details sections of the main report includes a subreport. I would like it if when I ran the report, it would allow the subreport to be split within several pages. Currently, the subreport shows up on page 2. I would like it to be split between pages one and two.This is what makes this problem interesting. The subreport exists in the Details d section of the main report. Details d is not checked as Keep Together or New Page Before. The details section before Details d (Details c) is not checked for New Page After. If you go into edit subrebort for Details d, the Report Header has New Page Before checked off, but it is disabled (I can't change it).How do I make this subreport flow across pages? Why is the Report Header section of my subreport checked for New Page Before but does not allow me to uncheck?

More Than 1 Subreports In Crystal Report www.codeguru.com

I'm trying to run Crystal report containing 2 subreports from VB6 application.If report itself and all subreports are based on SQL Server SPs then it's slow. I was suggested to pass ADO recordsets as datasources at run time. This scenario increased the speed dramatically. But there is a problem when the form with Crystalviewer is closing. The application just crashes without any messages.Just for testing purposes I tried to use the simplest sets of data (2-3 fields without any joins) for all recordsets. Even in this case the application crashes.Everything is fine when there is only 1 subreport. If 2 or more then there is a crash.Is there anybody who successfully uses Crystal report with more than 1 subreport? I'm asking only about reports which get there data from recordsets.I successfully created a report with several subreports but they are based on XML files.I need by some reason to base them on recordsets. They are created on TTX files and during run time ADO recordsets are passed.Vlad

Crystal 8 Control To Crystal 9 Viewer www.xtremevbtalk.com

I am migrating one application to Crystal 9 using a Viewer instead of the original application crystal control - all the reports are working well with the CRviewer9 except one.The one not working has a sub-report (so do some others, but they are fine).The subreport is in the report header section, and lists price-breaks for the item being reported on.There are only 2 lines of price-break, so only 2 lines should show in the report.I have 9 lines of detail in the report body (one line for each component of the item). Each price-break line is repeated nine times, so I have 18 lines in my price-break subreport, instead of 2.I have tried taking out all grouping, sorting etc. but nothing seems to make a difference.I had to change the data type from DAO to ADO and the crystal version from 8 to 9. Before this it was all working fine - any suggestions?

Simple enough? Yes. I got that. However, the group tree must show the subreports in the main Crystal report. These subreports have placed into the report footer section of the main report. I could not get the group tree to show these reports as the grouptree only shows the groups in the reports.I tried duplicating the tree structure in XML, disable the group tree in the Crystal report viewer, and add my own treeview with the report tree that I created in XML.Is this a good solution to the problem or does anyone have a different perspective on solving this problem?Thanking you in advancePORRASTAR

Creating Crystal Reports For VS 2005 For A Client Server Application www.daniweb.com

The problem I faced is that when I created Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2005 where the Crystal Report is displayed in the client application it does not get refreshed with data entered. It only displays data that was entered during the time of development. I think this is probably because the database path changes when deployed in a new environment while the Crystal report keeps referring to the database location at development time.
