Dynamic Data Connections -- only with Views?

Post Author: mk1

CA Forum: Data Connectivity and SQL

I'm developing reports using Crystal Designer (Crystal Reports Developer) in a mixed database environment. We have an Oracle database that has a TEST and a LIVE version, and I want my users to be able to run reports against either.

I looked at using the Business View Manager that came in my 5-user copy of Crystal Reports Server, to set up Dynamic Data Connections -- but I would have to develop VIEWs for all of my reports, to use that, correct?

How can I give my users the ability to run ANY of the reports I'm writing against either the TEST or the LIVE database, without me having to build views or duplicate (and then maintain duplicates of) the reports?

Thanks

M. KentGeorgia

    MK1, not sure for your version of CR, but in CRXI, you can add a command, in the command you can add a parameter to select the database.
