Please Help - Ok' or 'Accept' Button missing from 'Link Options' dialog???

Post Author: rhartness

CA Forum: Data Connectivity and SQL

I have a Crystal Report that I created and I have specified the database connection to a local, SQL Server Express database. I've selected and added the tables that I want on the 'Links' tab and the Database Expert dialog allows me to delete and drag/drop any table links as I desire. However, if I click on a link and then click the 'Link Options...' button, the window appears allowing me to click on the various join types but I can't change my selection because only the 'Cancel' and 'Help' buttons are visible. I need to click 'OK', not 'Cancel'. 'Help' is (ironically) useless.

Has anyone else seen this or know what may cause this to happen? I haven't been mucking around with any of the DB settings so all of the settings should be the standard defaults.

What's going on?

FYI- I'm using Crystal Reports Version 11.5.3.417

    Well, I fixed it in a ghetto-programmer type of way.

    I created a little Windows Application that found the hidden 'OK' button handle and passed it two Windows Msgs (WM_LBUTTON_DOWN & WM_LBUTTON_UP).

    For those who are not programmers, I basically forced a button click on the button, even though it was hidden. Who would have thought, it worked?! 😉

    If anyone knows the correct solution to this, please let me know. I don't like hacking applications like this because down the road their could be unexpected consequences that are sometimes unrelated. Thanks!
