Problems with Crystal Reports in Win98

I have an application written in C# using VS 2003 with MSDE as the database.
The reports use Crystal as provided with VS. The application and reports
work correctly under WinXP, but the reports do not work under Win98.

I have read the info re dbghelp.dll and CRQE.dll under Win98 ad have
implemented the recommendations . This avoids the "Failed to load report"
error. http://support.businessobjects.com/l...s/c2013420.asp

Now I am left with a different error message - "Invalid table number". This
occurs when the database source for the report is changed at runtime.
The error occurs at the point of setting the Location property for the first
(and only) table used in the ReportDocument. The stack trace shows it
failing in a call to setLocation(). There are no SubreportObject s either.

Any ideas why this would work in WinXP, but not in Win98? It obviously
needs to use SQL Authentication to access MSDE on Win98, but uses NT
Authentication on WinXP. It is set to NT Auth at design time, so do I need
to change this before I set location? I'm not sure how to do this at runtime
and would appreciate advice.

Hi Scott,

First of all, I would like to confirm my understanding of your issue. From
your description, I understand that you are receiving an error message -
"Invalid table number" when trying to change database at runtime. If there
is any misunderstandin g, please feel free to let me know.

Based on my research, this error message appears on certain computers,
because these computers are using a file DSN. However, the user running the
application does not have sufficient rights to use the file DSN.

To resolve this error message, use a System DSN. Modify your report and
code to use this System DSN to successfully run the application.

For more information, please check the following link:


Crystal report is not supported by Microsoft. For more information related
to this issue please check the following link:

I have a transaction log file where the DataSet table's Description column is actually delimited into "subcolumns" based upon the transaction id. I would like to parse these into separate fields for reporting purposes and am wondering if anyone knows if this is easily accomplished using the .NET version of Crystal Reports? For example, the description column may be reporting on a dataentry error as follows: TXNCODE: 1010001

Good Afternoon all, I have searched the news groups/web for anything releated to this problem but have come up empty. The situation is I have developed a program which allows the user to select an access database of their choosing and generate a report. Program works well under XP, however under Windows 98 I get the error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object". Here is what I have done on the Windows 98SE machine.

I know that this has been beaten to death but I can't seem to resolve my issues (I have 2 of them). I have created a class that exposes a public method which returns a datatable as a datasource for a Crystal Report. The method has a single argument which represents a parameter required by the Stored Procedure. When I generate the report in Crystal and run it using the class I built, it works fine. I've tried it with parameters and...
