Crystal Reports and Universe Connection (Access DB)



I am trying to use a universe as a data source for Crystal Reports 2008. The universe is defined on a simple relational Access DB table (.mdb file which resides on the server). After selecting the universe as data source, I can select measures and attributes from it, but after clicking "ok" I am getting the error "Fehler bei Anmeldung." ("Logon failed.").

Please note that although I am connecting to a relational (not OLAP!) DB, SAP-Note

" 1363326 - Error: Logon failed on Crystal Report conecting to OLAP Universe."

describes exactly the error I am facing (except that this note is for OLAP universes).

The universe works fine if I use it in WebI as data soruce.

Which universes can Crystal Reports 2008 actually use in general?

Are there any special restrictions for the data model?

Thanks for your help!
