Updating Oracle Driver Results in 1 Report Displaying Blank Page - Tough One

I've updated a bunch of reports from XI to 2013 and updated the driver from ADO to Oracle Server. The reports call Oracle procedures that return a SYS_REFCURSOR and this works for about 30 reports...but 1 report just displays a blank page.

This is a dynamic query, so I was able to output the query and verified it returns data.

I've run the procedure as the report login and verified output.

I replaced the dynamic query with hard coded SQL...still a blank page.

If I use the ADO driver the report will display data.

If I create a table with the results the Oracle Server driver will display the report.

The report was fairly complex so I created a new report using the procedure and just placed some of the columns in the details, and it's also blank.

There was a parameter called Page that I thought might be a Crystal keyword that I changed...same result.

I can't run the query from Crystal as it utilizes WITH blocks.

Procedure parameters:







Output Columns:


Any ideas?

Any ideas on how to capture the data being sent to the report outside of Oracle?

    Hi Richard,

    I don't think your SP is formatted as CR requires.

    Search for this KBA:

    1181947 - Oracle Stored Procedures and Crystal Reports

    Make sure the user has permissions to the tables, CR fully supports DB security.

    The Oracle Server driver requires the date format to be YYYY/MM/DD, where the ADO driver was much more forgiving.
