Why is ODBC table selection causing fatal error?

After four tries I finally have crystal reports up and running. I am able to find and select the ODBC database driver for our TopSpeed (Clarion) database structure, and it correctly identifies all the tables. However, on attempting to move a table to the selected group, there is an immediate fatal error, Crystal reports closes. Where can I find a resource to assist? The ODBC driver is supplied as a READ-ONLY connection, and is from Clarion. Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

    Does Crystal Reports work with ODBC connection to other datasources? It should help to narrow down the cause.

    I would suggest to use CRLogger:

    and look at the generated log during the crash. If the last error is referring to Access problem then the READ-ONLY mode is the cause.

      The problem leaves only an error message in crlogger that saysodbcerror.cpp 63 Error: message = [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver does not support this function.
