Logon Failed

Hi Everybody !

I´m facing some problems with CRXI +

I´m using Crystal Activex Report Viewer Control 11.5 and when I try to view the report I get this error message "LOGON FAILED" ...

My code is .....

Dim Appl As New CRAXDRT.Application

Dim xReport As New CRAXDRT.Report

Dim i As Integer

xReport = Appl.OpenReport("C:SistemasSICSICRelatorios" & NomeRelatorio & "")

For i = 1 To xReport.Database.Tables.Count


xReport.Database.Tables(i).ConnectionProperties.Add("DSN", "bdsme")

xReport.Database.Tables(i).ConnectionProperties.Add("User ID", "sic")

xReport.Database.Tables(i).ConnectionProperties.Add("Password", "cis")

xReport.Database.Tables(i).ConnectionProperties.Add("Database", "bdsme")

xReport.Database.Tables(i).ConnectionProperties.Add("UseDSNProperties", True)

Next i

crviewer.EnableExportButton = True

crviewer.EnablePrintButton = True

crviewer.ReportSource = xReport


Any ideas ???

    Hi, Binho;

    First, please be aware that our ActiveX Viewer was designed for VB 6, and has not been tested, and is no supported in .NET.

    Unless you are changing databases completely, it should not be necessary to call the DeleteAll method.

    Try using our Connection Properties document ( to set the code just to log on.


    'Declare a Connection Info Object

    Dim ConnectionInfo As CRAXDRT.ConnectionProperties

    'Set the Connection Info to Connection Properties of u2018the table object

    Set ConnectionInfo = Report.Database.Tables(1).ConnectionProperties

    'Set the ODBC DSN

    ConnectionInfo.Item(u201CDSNu201D) = u201CODBC DSNu201D

    'Set the database name

    ConnectionInfo.Item(u201CDatabaseu201D) = u201CDatabase nameu201D

    'Set the user name

    ConnectionInfo.Item(u201CUser IDu201D) = u201CUser nameu201D

    'Set the password

    ConnectionInfo.Item(u201CPasswordu201D) = u201CPasswordu201D

    'Set the fully qualified table name if different from u2018the original data source

    Report.Database.Tables(1).Location = u201Cdatabase.owner.tablenameu201D

    Binho, you are using the Report Designer Component (RDC) in .NET. This component has not been tested in .NET and is thus not supported in .NET. Also, the RDC has been retired in CR 2008, which is the currently shipping version of Crystal Reports. I would highly recommend that yo use the Crystal Reports assemblies for .NET for your application. Help can be found here:

    • Binho, make this as simple as you can, gain experience and confidence as you go.

      1) Create as simple a report as you can; One field. Make sure the report works inthe designer. No subreports

      2) Plug it into a sample windows app (don't start with web app as you introduce all kinds of variables there)you can download from here:

      The app I want you to use is in the above self extracting exe and is called vbnet_win_engine

      3) If the above works, add one of your reports, that does NOT have a subreport. Make that work

      4) Add a report that has a subreport, if you have one, make that work

      5) Now that you have some success with the above, move over to your app and match the success.
