Crystal report from SAP infoset query

Hi All,

I am facing a problem in a crystal report which is based on Infoset query. When I run the report after passing the parameters it gives me an error "Database error occured" "Parameter field value does not exists" "RFC Closed"

But if I run the same Infoset query from SQ01 I am able to run it with same paramenter and it returns many records.

To be very precise I am running the best practice crystal report "Cost Analysis - Planned vs. Actual Order Costs" which is based on infoset query CO_OM_CA_20_Q1.

It throws me error that "Controlling Area does not exists".

Did anyone faced similar problem?

Best Regards,

    log into your SAP ERP system using the SAP GUI and choose in the SAP Menu the following path:

    SAP Menu -> Accounting -> Controlling -> Cost Cetner Controlling ->Environment->Set Controlling Area.

    Set the desired controlling area for your user there (DO NOT FORGET TO CLICK ON THE DISKETTE ICON) and try again.
