Crystal Reports 11 - Could not find installable ISAM

Using Crystal Reports 11 to access an ODBC csv data source, I am getting the following message when trying to connect:

"HY000: [Microsoft][ODBC Text Driver] Could not find installable ISAM. [Database Vendor Code: -1056]"

I am unsure what this means and can't find any info relating to Crystal on the web. Can anyone help please?

    Hello Tara,

    I recommend to post this query to the [Crystal Reports Design|SAP Crystal Reports; forum.

    This forum is dedicated to topics related to the creation and design of Crystal Report documents. This includes topics such as database connectivity, parameters and parameter prompting, report formulas, record selection formulas, charting, sorting, grouping, totaling, printing, and exporting but also installation and registering.

    It is monitored by qualified technicians and you will get a faster response there.

    Also, all Crystal Reports Design queries remain in one place and thus can be easily searched in one place.

    Best regards,
