Trying to generate reports (Crystal Reports) from a remote sql server with VB.net RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys, I need help with Crystal Reports. 

    I'm trying to generate reports from a remote database using a connection string. Everyting is working okay with the connection, it's just with the reports the problem.

    I have a stored procedure in my sql database with one parameter. I'm using Crystal's wizard to make a local connection to bring the stored procedure, but by code, I'm giving it my connection string saved in mysettings.

     Dim svrcon = My.Settings.ServerCon
        Dim cn As New SqlConnection(svrcon)

    Try Dim dt As New DataTable Dim iden As String = TextBox1.Text Using cn As New SqlConnection(svrcon) cn.Close() Using query As New SqlCommand("BSolicitante_Reportes @id = '" & iden & "'", cn) cn.Open() Dim reader As SqlDataReader = query.ExecuteReader dt.Load(reader) Dim rpt As New RptPrueba_2 rpt.SetParameterValue("@id", iden) CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = rpt End Using End Using Catch ex As Exception MessageBox.Show("Error: " & ex.ToString) End Try

    The parameter is taken from textbox1.text.

    "BSolicitante_reportes" is my stored procedure.

    Once I try to generate the report from a client PC, it shows me the database login...
