Crystal Report fails on German machine


Hi all

We had someone trying our product on German Version of XP w/ SP2 and with German Version of MS Excel 2003 w/ SP3.

We use Crystal Report

Crystal Report is connecting through ODBC Excel driver (version Excel 97-2000, Read Only).

ODBC driver and Excel file that it points to are present and seemed to be OK.

The user gets following error message:

Crystal Report Viewer

Failed to open a rowset.

Details: 42S02:[Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver] Das Microsoft Jet-Datenbankmodul konnte das Objekt 'extension Usage' nicht finden. Stellen Sie sicher, dass das Objekt existiert und dass die Namens- und Pfadangaben richtig eingegeben wurden.

According to the user, this means:

MS Jet datamodul couldnt find the objectu2026.please ensure that the object exists.

We had application being used by many people for a 3 or 4 years and no-one has had this problem.

The only difference that I can find is that he is using German verison of XP & Excel.

Has anyone else run into this?

Is this known problem?

Is there workaround?

Many thanks
