Unknown Database Connector Error when accessing Foxpro Database


I am using Crystal Reports 2008 version to access a Foxpro database. When using Database Files option in the Database Expert I can browse to the database files and see the individual .dbf files but when I try to open one I get these errors:

Failed to Load Database Info followed by Unknown Database Connector Error.

I have full rights on the database and can access the data just fine using another reporting tool.

I've read the various posts in this forum and haven't found anything which addresses this problem.

    Hi Chris,

    As a test try creating an ODBC System DSN to the DBF file and see if CR can use it to connect without errors.

    Thank you
