Configuring the Data Source by Editing the .RPT File

One of the ways to properly setup the data source is to configure or change the data source inside the report file. To do this, the database driver must be setup on the PC, and you must have a full version of Crystal Reports to edit the data source inside the report.

Here are the steps:

  • Change the data source inside Crystal Reports as you would generally change it.
  • Use the "Verify Database" menu item.
  • Save the report file.

Now the data source should work correctly on the new PC.
