OLE object link on a mapped drive changes to UNC path

76 Views

Hi all,

I'm creating several reports to be used by multiple sites, each site has there own file server and each computer has a mapped drive to their own file server.

I 'thought' that I would be able to create one set of reports and distribute them to the different file servers. I'm using file DSN to a mapped drive (which works great). And I put a company logo in the reports which is a OLE object pointing to a mapped drive.

Unfortunately Crystal changes this link to a UNC path so which ever server I was mapped to when I created the reports every report uses that save file.

Does anyone know if I can do this somehow, or am I going to have to have a different set of reports for each site (making maintaning them a knightmare)?

TIA

Gavin
