Proceeding to fix up the report! <br /><br />what actually the problem and what should i do?.. <br /><br /><br />thank u
You have modified the database schema after creating the report
Open the crystal report and do an update. then it should work And also, this section is for the reporting service of the SQL Server not for crystal reports. There is a good forum for crystal reports in —————————————-

Open the Report Do verify Database and save it
It will work without problem Madhivanan Failing to plan is Planning to fail
You can even do the verifying of database before calling it from VB6 too.
So that even if the DB changes the error won’t be raised and everytime you don’t have do the verify manually.

i can’t see the data..only the header of the report that have been created earlier.. what should i do sir?..
do i need to recreate the report?
or is there anything with the source code of the vb application? thank u regards.
Make sure you have records in the table
Otherwise in the menu Goto Database and Do verify database
Set the Database Location also
Otherwise recreate the report Madhivanan Failing to plan is Planning to fail
Try to verify the report from VB end as if in near future if you change something in Db then you again need to verify manually so better is use crytal object property of verifying the db from VB end.
Create an object of crystal report in vb and check for that objects property.
