I was doing virtually the same thing and my problem turned
out to be a permissions issue. I had to grant the aSPNET
account Full Access to the crystal directory as well as
the winnt\microsoft.net\framework\v1.x.xxxxx\ directory to
solve the problem. The error is pretty generic so you
could also have a data problem. You may want to verify
that the data is being retrieved by setting on the
datatables in the ds to a datagrid, e.g.

Datagrid1.datasource = myDS.Table1
Datagrid1.Databind

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your reply. I am new to .net. I am hoping that you have the
time to show me how and where to set the permissions. I get this error
even before the page loads.

Thanks again for your response.
