Change Template from ODBC to ADO at runtime

We have templates which at design time were bound to use ODBC. Is it possible for an application to load a template and to dynamically change it to use ADO?

thanks

Michael

Hi Michael,

Yes it is, you'll have to either hire a .NET Developer or use a third party tool that can do it for you.

You can get the CR installer into VS 2010->2015 from here:

https://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/BOBJ/Crystal+Reports%2C+Developer+for+Visual+Studio+Downloads

Install VS first then the first link to install into VS, all other are for distributing the runtime only, do not install them on the Developers PC.

The API to use is ReplaceConnection(), search, you'll find a KBA on how to.

And added CR for VS Tag to your post.

Don
