    Database connection... Thanks for your help! I have set up a similar connection method to the one in your link. I can't seem to get the databases to populate though. "Unable to Connect" pops up. Any thoughts on what I might be doing wrong? Also - the server droplist does populate - but it...

    .NET 2005 data access problem

    Not sure what is going wrong here. I just upgraded to .NET 2005 and SQL Server Express 2005 from .NET 2003 and MSDE. I've been working on a huge project for ages, which I 'converted' to 2005. Now I can't figure out what's wrong. It's like I have a snapshot of the original database, and that's...

    subreports overlapping

    Hello, I'm building a report in Crystal Reports 9, within VB.NET. I have a 'main' form, with many subforms on it. I need the subforms to be able to 'grow' if needed. How do I set them up so they don't overlap when they do grow? Right now, they grow as they should, but if the 1st subreport...

    Crystal Reports Subreport issue

    I figured it out... Since no-one ever replied to me, I'll answer this one myself :) I was 'adding a database' from 'more Datasources' then choosing ADO dataset. This seemed obvious to me at the time. Apparently I needed to add a database from the OLE DB (ADO) list instead. *sigh* that took...

    MS Application Blocks question

    MS App block - filling more than one table in a dataset Well that is how I was doing it. But only my first table was ever populating. The 2nd table always remained empty. I'm not sure where the problem lies, but I thought maybe it was when I called the SQLHelper class. Amber
