Browse Data & Parameter flds no longer fully populated after upgd SQL 2005

I upgrade our SQL 2000 Server last weekend to SQL 2005 (sp2).

Now our Crystal reports that access SQL data are not working correctly. Parameter Fields are showing little to no data, where before the upgrade we were seeing many more rows in the list.

Digging further, I looked at the fields used for the dynamic LOV. If I use Browse Data on those fields I am seeing the same lack of data. One "Browse Data" that would typically return 80 items now returns 3 items. In that report the data field is DateTime. In another report, the field is string.

I am also seeing an extra check for User Name and password before getting to the Enter values screen for the parameter.

I am using Crystal Developer It is happening on multiple PCs. I tried with both the original SQL ODBC Driver and the newer SQL Native Client ODBC driver, with the same result.

I've looked at this for 3 days with no luck. Any ideas?

It could be!

What 'rights' do you have to the db?

may require a dedicated 'crystal report logon' to the db with read-only rights....
