Crystal Report always requires sa logon and password

I have created a simple crystal report, with two parameters (date range) and added it to the main menu using the Report and Layout Manager, in 8.8 PL19 HF. The first time I run the report, after each logon, I am prompted for the sa password. How can I avoid this? Not only do I not want to give all of my users the sa password, but I don't want them to have to deal with the hassle of entering it. The report works fine otherwise.

I saw some notes similar to this, but never really saw an actual fix provided.

Thanks for any help

    Hi,

    This is a known bug for pre PL 21 versions. You need to upgrade to the latest PL.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    1. Are you using the SAP connection? If you have, but problem persist, try the following steps.

    2. If you are using ODBC connection, then try OLEDB connection.

    3. If you have created the report on your laptop (eg: ABC) with connection to (eg:ABC) and then you import the report to SAP server (eg: named SAP), then open the report in Crystal and reset location to SAP.
