Always prompted for password to run report

hello,

we are using crystal reports 14.0.2.364.

when running (or refreshing) a report, we are always prompted for the odbc (rdo) password.

is there a way to store this within the report so any user running the report is not prompted for it?

the data source is an oracle driver - which unlike sql does not provide field to allow a password to be defined at system dsn (windows 2008 server).

therefore I am hoping it can set within crystal?

thanks.

    Hi Wasim,

    The CR Designer doesn't store passwords, unfortunately.

    Use a Server Product like CR Server or Business Objects BI 4.0. Both these products can save database passwords.

    Or, create a custom app that does the same.
