Why am I getting "The Report Filename Is Empty - Using CR13 vs2010 2003sqls

I am enhancing a app that was originally written with vs2010, crystal reports 10 and telerik.

It has been running for a year.

I have made enhancements using vs2010sp1, cr 13, telerik framework updated.

The server is a 2003 server.

The reports are loaded into the app using vb code.

My version creates a message the filename is empty on initial loading of the report

which the users will find annoying as they have to enter the report request.

This message has to be internal because I not coded for this message

I don't get this message when testing at my workstation. It happens when I load the

app to the server.

Any ideas or solutions appreciated.

Under the gun.

Thanks in advance

    "The report filename was empty." is not a Crystal Reports error.

    Specify what the application exactly does i.e. view report, print, export report etc.

    Take a look at below thread.


    Recheck the flow of the application if everything is in place.

    Refer to the developer guide :[|]

    Apply [SP2 on CR for VS 2010|]

    Just as a test try a sample application without the telerik framework, see if it reproduces the issue.

    Hope this helps,

    vs2010, crystal reports 10

    And that actually worked? Only Crystal Reports for Visual Studio 2010 (13.x) is and always has been supported with VS2010...

    In any case, using the Page_Init instead of the page_Load to declare the path will most likely resolve the issue.

    Try a simple one line test app without using teleric:

    crystalreportsviewer1.reportsource = <report source>

    Use the search box in the top right corner, enter "ajax". You'll get a number of hits, see if any of these will help.

    Make sure you are on SP 2 for CRVS2010:

    SAP Crystal Reports, developer version for Microsoft Visual Studio: Updates & Runtime Downloads
