Crystal reports not refreshing data when report copied to different computer.

Dear All

Kindly assist, I have this issue, we have designed a report and it is working fine on my system. The issue comes up when i try to print the same report at a different system. The report prints the same data as on my initial system. The data does not refresh. it keeps on printing the same data over and over.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

kind regards,

Hi James,

What database are you connecting to and how are you connecting?  Are you using ODBC? 

In the report, if you go to Database | Set Datasource Location, make sure the datasource is pointing to the correct database. 

If you are using ODBC, make sure the ODBC Datasource is also pointing to the correct database.  If you do not have Saved Data turned on the report should be connecting to the database.  You'll just need to make sure that connection is valid. 

Good luck,
