Changing connection type at runtime

Hello, I am experiencing some strange issues here.

I guess it all comes down to this: If we create a report in Crystal Reports that uses a data source of specific type (let' say ODBC) can we specify at different data source (and type - let's say a custom one like crdb_ado) at runtime?

I am currently trying this and I am getting connection refused errors. Any advice?

    Need more info...

    What do you mean by "runtime" in CR Designer, in an application using the SDK's or in BOE?

    Hi

    You can create two connections of different type in Business View Manager and then create a Dynamic Data Connection on top of them.

    Create other layers like Data Foundation ,Business Element and Business View on top of that.

    you can use the Business View for reporting. It will prompt you to choose the DataConnection at runtime

    Hope this helps
