Is there anyway to use a connection string from web.config for Crystal Report? The problem I'm having is that I develop on two different computers and on each I use a different IP to connect to the SQL Server. And when I deploy to a web server I use "localhost". So each time I get prompted for changes from the Crystal Report...
I have serveral databases with same tables. I created a crystal report to show the report for respective logins from the database. I have a problem in it. In crystal report when i changing the database it should not change the respective table. It loads only the table what we give in the connection string first time.
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).
In order to pull a connection string from (a method, a web service, or what ever) just not the web.config.To return a connection string not from the web.config?
I know we can make the connection string of a table adapter public and change it when we access the table. I want one place (the ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings) change to pull the connection string from another method, just not the web.config. I do not keep connection strings in the web.config and would like to override this method.
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 built a crystal report using crystal report 2008, and have it working fine aganist my test db. in my c# code that loads the report I put this in:
but problem is when i pushed this change to production, the report was stilling pulling test data, even though the web.config entry (LocalSqlServer) was updated in production to use production db. Could I have setup the crystal file incorrectly? When I'm creating the crystal file and connecting it to the db, is there something that I need to check or uncheck to tell it I'm going to dynamically supply the db connection rather than having it use the one I used to setup the report?
I wanted to post my problem and solution since I've gotten some good information on this board. When deploying my Visual Studio 2008 C# .NET 2.0 web application Production, I encountered some problems, which is not unusual. What was unusual is that my Crystal Reports .NET reports that use the Report Viewer control would not work; they errored out with:
note: Crystal Report works fine in dev environment....
Logon failed. Details: ADO Error Code: 0x Source: ADODB.Connection Description: Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed. Unable to connect: incorrect log on parameters.We are using Oracle 11g 64 bit as database. We establish crystal report database connection by two ways,
1. Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle
2. Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC
but we got the same error in report module when we using two methods.
I inherited some project which uses crystal reports. The datasource for startdate is in string format but I would like to make it up so that the time does not get added. Should I change the sql query somehow or can I make from the object in crystal reports (IFieldObject) to something more manageable.
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).

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#.
I am trying to write a simple string manipulation on a formula field. Left (string, N) returns junk character but if I hard code N to some numbers it returns proper string like Left(string, 10) returns good; Left (string, 10) --> returns good stringLeft (string, Instr(string, ">")); --> returns junkX := InStr(string, ">"); Left (string, X); --> returns junkHere is my formula field:
local StringVar temp; local StringVar temp1; local NumberVar x; temp := "<span style='font-size:10pt;font-weight:bold;color:red;'>testing</span>"; x := InStr (temp, ">"); temp := Left (temp, x); if (1=1) then temp;

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?
