Test OLE DB Connection External to Crystal Reports or Report Runner

  Print

Question: Is there a way to test an OLE DB connection? I'm trying to run a report on a new machine and it is getting a database connection error.

Answer: Yes. As long as you know the OLE DB connection information from your report (you can see this in Crystal Reports or in our Report Runner log files), then you can type/paste that same connection information into this test:
