Crystal Report 8 and SQL Server 2008 R2

Hi there,

Our VB 6 application uses Crystal Report 8 for reports. After upgrading SQL Server 2000 database to SQL Server 2008 R2, reports stopped working. The error message it displays is "Cannot open SQL Server". The ODBC that is used to connect to the database shows successful test connection. And I am also able to preview the report from Segate Crystal Reports application.

Any ideas will be highly appreciable.

Thanks in advance.

Don is on vacation, but I can help with that:

1. supports MS SQL Server 2008 R2

- Yes.

2. and ships with RDC for VB6 which can be use to replace CRPEAuto

- Yes

And I believe this is the link to the article re. converting from crpeauto to RDC:

Good Luck,
