Using a SP as main datasource and Universe for Sub Report

Hi there,

I currently have a report that uses a stored procedure to get the main data for a report, and it has a sub report that connects to a universe to display some other details. This all works fine in development on Crystal Reports for Enterprise. However when I move to our staging or production environments the report crashes when it loads as it is trying to access the Dev server.

I have done plenty of testing on this and the error only happens in the above scenario, for example just having a report that uses the universe as the datasource works fine as it does if I just use the SP with no sub report, in fact every scenario seems to work apart from where I have the main source linked to the SP with a sub report linked to the universe.

Has anyone seen anything similar or have any ideas of how to fix this?

    I would first check the permissions granted the the user assigned to the report. It is very common for permissions to be different in the Development and a Production enviroments. If the user permissions are the same in both schemas then verify that the roles assigned are the same as well ( or are the appropriate roles depending on the configuration of the schema in both enviroments. if that doesn't work look for proper aliases or synomns again depending on the particular schemas used in your enviorment.
