Crystal Reports Database Connection

Hi guys, its been a while.

Ive finally got crystal reports for visual basic studio 2008, and i keep getting problem after problem using it.

At first i coneected to an access databse(unsecure) to produce reports. This worked fine while viewing the report in the design viewer however when i ran the aplication it asked for login details, and i could not get past that.

Now i have moved on to sql databases also unsecure. Now there are no access restrictions but the report doesnt contain any data from the database its completely blank.

Any insights?

(ps what happened to the forum post leaders in the margin? )

Thanks for any help

Daniel :P
