Links removed when connecting with the RDC (Automatic SetLocation)

Hello,

We have a VB6 application that is using the Crystal Report 11 RDC to display reports. When we are connecting the report to the database, one of the SQL links is removed because a field contained in this link is removed from its table. This behaviour gives us problem because the data returned is not good anymore. We would have expected the report to leave the SQL intact and give an error instead.

Is there a way to workaround this behavior.

Thank you.

    Couple of things:

    1) What does the report do in the CR designer hen you remove this object from the database? What ever the designer does, we'd expect at runtime.

    2) See if adding the option verify on first refresh helps. You will find this option in the CR designer under the File menu | report Options.

      Hello,

      Ludek thanks for the information. So far I think i will be able to use the Field Mapping event to trap that there is a unrecognized fields in the report.

      Thank you.
