Publishing to web creates a "Failed to open a rowset"


I have a report that works flawlessly on my personal system, but when I passed it over to IT for them to put up on the company intranet, the report generates a "Failed to open a rowset" error message with some cryptic comments afterwards...

Version of Crystal Reports used is 9, and here's the exact error message; can anyone give me some clues as to what's occuring here?:

Failed to open a rowset.
