CR9: failed to open rowset error after changing record selection formula


I created a simple report that displays the cost of implants in surgeries performed in a specific date range. The records are grouped by Facility and Procedure Group.

When I change the selection formula to only include a specific surgeon, CR9 throws the errors "Failed to open a rowset" and "Not supported. Details: Error Code: 0x800a0bcd." The error doesn't occur if I remove the groups.

Has anyone had the same problem?

    need more information:

    1) What language are you developing in?

    2) What database are you connecting to?

    3) What is your database connection type (ODBC, OLE DB, etc.)?

    4) Does the report run as expected in the CR designer?

    5) Have you applied any updates to your version of CR?

    6) Is this happening on your development system, or once that app is deployed?

    7) Is this a web or a win app?

    8) What is the exact version of CR used (9.1, 9.2)?

      That did it the trick. There were no null values on the table. It was the Use Indexes for Speed option that was causing the error. Do you know what this option is for?

      Thank you so much. I was getting stressed out over this.
