    Hi Harshika,

    What is the version of Crystal Reports and SQL Server?

    Install the SQL Native Client (SQLNCLI) and then try with an ODBC/OLEDB connection.

      Hi Harshika,

      Check if you are able to connect SQL Server from your client machine and check if there any issues with view/tables/stored procedures which you are using in the report.
