Crystal Reports :: Beginner To Crystal Reports Configuration?
Mar 11, 2010
We have an old server (Win Server 2003/ IIS) that makes use of an old version of Crystal Reports for asp.net pages. I'm making a new server (Win Sever 2008 SP2/ IIS 7) that will be the replacement for the old server. I have asp.net apps working, but since I can't use the old Crystal reports install, the new one isn't doing anything for me.After installing CRRedist2008_x86, it shows some files in:
andC:Program FilesBusiness ObjectsCommon2.8inAre there any special configurations I have to do in IIS to get asp.net to recognize this stuff? Right now, I'm getting nothing.
When i run the application locally it works fine but when i publish it n access from it it gives the error asEither the Crystal Reports registry key permissions are insufficient or the Crystal Reports runtime is not installed correctly.
I'm new to Visual Studio.NET . I need to integrate the crystal reports into an ASP.NET application. I generated Crystal report with the help of crystal report XI developer edition(Stand alone version and NOT from the one which comes from visual studio).
How to integrate this report with the web application.
I have already generated crystal reports but i've made them static. but now i want to make the user to select the criteria for generating the reports. for eg., in one of them i want to show monthwise data so user should be able to select the month and year and that would be passed as parameter and compared to the existing data. provide me with proper exact code that can be used for giving parameters in such a report using C#.
In my system Visual studio 2008 with sp1 and Crystal Reports XI Release 2.In Visaul studio 2008 ,while adding add reference it showing crystal reports version 10 instead of 11.How to solve the version problem.
I am considering using Crystal Report 2008 as my tool of creating reports on my webpage.The only problem which I'm facing is that I have no control of the remote server which hosts my site (besides uploading files). I can't run a MSI to deploy the CR runfiles.I can't find anywhere in the CR user manual of how to deploy the runtime files without running the msi, and I'm not even sure it's possible.Have anyone deployed CR 2008 without running the MSI and without having to register any files?
I have a field in my dataset with type nvarchar(1000). when I link it to crystal reports, it converts it to a field of type string with length set to 100. As a result of that, the string in that field is being truncated on the report. How can I increase the string length to 1000? (I already checked the "Can grow" option).
I have developed few crystal reports using VS.2005 and now i want to deploy the same on my web server which is running Windows 2003 server and got installed only .net frame work 2.0.... so now i want to know how can i run those reports successfully and i have downloaded CRRedist2005_X86.msi and even crXIsp3 and 4 _net_server from business objects page and i do have Crystal Reports XI original CD.... while by using them can i run crystal reports on my web pages.
I'm working on a site that ws developed using VS 2005 and the server where the site is running has Crystal Reports for .net 2.0 (ver 10.2.36)I will be making changes. I just ported the website to my local computer, and build the site using VS 2008, that comes with Crystal R. Basic.I haven't tested all the functionality of the site, so I'm not sure since all the pages that use C. Reports work ok.My main concern is about publishing the site I compiled to the server. Will things work, if I have Crystal R. Basic and the server has Crystal R. for .net 2.0.
Crystal reports are properly working on my local pc but not on server. I am using vs 2008 and install crystal report for Visual basic 2008 on server.but parameter count for CrystalReport is zero on server.
I'm new to Crystal Reports and am just trying to add some simple reports to my web application. In the non-report pages I've been using SqlDataSources to retrieve data from the database and would like to do the same for the report pages. I saw a tutorial that indicated I could do this by explicitly setting the data source for the report in the Page_Load callback of the ASPX page as shown below:
Is there a way to create "bound" fields w/o a database, since I'll be specify the database at runtime? Or is there a way to create the ".rpt" file w/ unbound fields, that get "bound" at runtime?Or is there a better way to do this altogether?
I have master page, menu on master page, i use asp roles and trim menu item based on user roles and rights this process is working fine.
Now i have to create some reports based on user roles, and responsibility in a company like country head will view country wide reports, manager region will only view regional report and rest will view reports related to them.
How can i achieve this efficiently using asp roles.
Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL. ----------------------------------- This error will be display when I am try to show the Crystal Report. Can anybody tell me what Property I have to ser in Windows Server 2008 R2 or in IIS7???
a myth has been passed to me by a senior who told me to 'always' design a crystal report using Add command and not through the table view (like selecting tables and linking them manually).I have been having a hard time writing the queries for master detail reports and making sub report links manually. It gets pretty confusing sometimes.I find it easy to design reports by just selecting two tables and dragging and dropping the link in crystal report designer.
I am creating the crystal report without database data, just i am read the data from text file and fill into dataset then genrate the crystal report but problem is here if i am export the crystal report into different format so he wants the database logon parameter.so in this case i have no database crendential because i am creating the report without database.
