excel database source logon userid password

Post Author: xcao

CA Forum: Crystal Reports

I was trying to develop a report using Crystal Reports 10 with an Excel file as the data source. The Excel file was saved on a network folder. When I ran it in Crystal Reports, it completed successfully. Now I want to schedule it in Crystal Management Console. What's the logon for this Excel file? I tried to use my network logon for it, but it seemed it didn't work. What should the logon for the Excel file be?

Also I tried to create an ODBC with excel file, it have the same problem, I tried blank user/password, admin/blank, no one works.

I search on the internet and business object website and cannot find the answer.

I feel so frustrated about looking for help for crystal report.

    I use OLEDB microsoft jet 4.0 to create the data source, it seems working, but I need to find time to go back to that project later.
