Unable to refresh a crystal report on BOE which connect to an excel


I have a crystal report which connect to an excel sheet on network. I am able to open it locally and refresh it. But after I upload it to the BOE, open it from infoview, I am not able to refresh it. it prompts for the database connection info.

I created an ODBC connection (choose MS excel and point to the excel file on network drive) on the BOE Server, it did not ask me for the login info and the server is responding. I also added this connection to BOE. But when I refresh the report from either infoview or CMC, it ask me for the database connection info with user login.

What should I do to solve this?
