Crystal Reports and custom objects question

P: n/a
I am brand new to using Crystal Reports and am trying to generate a report
based on a custom object - in another project. I have a layered design, with
all my business objects in a seperate project. I created a new project as
part of the solution, added a reference to the project containing my business
objects, created a datasource that points to one of the objects and then
tried to create CR based on the object. The data tab (in the CR wizzard)
refuses to 'see' the datasource I have set up. Does this mean that I have to
define the report in the same project as the class definition? If that is
so... that sure sucks!
Maybe I am just missing something... can someone point me in the right
direction?

Hi Terry,

Regarding on the Crystal reports specific issue, I would recommend you try
posting in the crystal reports community support site.

#Crystal Reports
http://technicalsupport.businessobje...ShowForum.aspx

Or for Crystal Reporsts Visual Studio issue, there has a dedicated group in
MSDN forum, you may find some useful information there:

#Crystal Reports for Visual Studio

Thanks for your understanding!

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng
