public partial class viewCustomersByCity : System.Web.UI.Page

    private ReportDocument customersByCityReport;
    private void ConfigureCrystalReports()
        ConnectionInfo connectionInfo = new ConnectionInfo();
        connectionInfo.ServerName = @"WKM1925-PCWKM1925";

        ArrayList arrayList = new ArrayList();

        arrayList.Add("Buenos Aires");
        arrayList.Add("Sao Paulo");

        ParameterFields parameterFields = CrystalReportViewer1.ParameterFieldInfo;
        SetCurrentValuesForParameterField(customersByCityReport, arrayList);

        CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = customersByCityReport;

1st scenario



When in a runtime, it's keep appear a dialog box. This dialog box ask me to suppy Server, User ID, Password and Database. Once all information is supplied, my report display the data as expected

2nd scenario



I change my report using OLE DB (ADO) -> Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server -> checked on Integrated Security. I just choose Server, and Database. I assume me using Windows Authentication

When in a runtime, there's no dialog box as above. My report display the data as expected. really cool

Look's like, when report using SQL Server Authentication there's some problem. but, when report using Windows Authentication, it's fine.

I'm looking for comment. Please help me

    MS SQL Server 2008 requires you to install the MS Client Tools for 2008.

    Once install then update all of your reports to use the SQL Native 10 as the OLE DB driver.

    The try again, if it still fails search, lots of sample log on code in this forum.
