I apologize if this is not the correct place to ask this question but I can't seem to find a better place.
I have a crystal reports query that works on one computer and not on another. same driver and software. The driver is PGPRO915.DLL version 03.60.0000
Crystal reports 8.5 running on XP. I can't think of a reason a query would work fine on one computer and not another. They are accessing the same server same DB with the same report and query. I've tested on 3 computers, 1 works 2 do not.
Any ideas or even just a suggestion of a direction to look? any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
Check odbc settings on all 3 computers + compare
The configuration settings in: Administrative Tools -> Data Sources (ODBC) -> System DSN is setup exactly the same on the computers. Is there another place I should be looking as well?
What error are you getting? And is the same error on both non-working PC's?
ODBC error: [DataDirect-Technologies][ODBC PROGRESS driver][PROGRESS]Syntax error (7587)
You can go back into odbc admin and TEST from each PC. Could be a permissions thing - or firewall on the server blocking 2 of the pc's in question.
You would be able to confirm this from odbc admin on each/ (pass/fail)
If I do a test connect, it says "Connection Established". If I open crystal reports and log into the database it pulls up the tables. Its connecting, its just being dumb when it sends the query for some reason.
Ok let's look at this another way - has this report been running fine from all 3 stations until just recently?
Aka what changed to make it stop working?
This was not working before. The two machines that are not working are new installs.
From the progress KB - re error 7587
"Crystal Reports 9 requires Registry update for Outer Joins"
So could be that you need to export the reg settings from the working machine and import to the nonworking machines
tried that article and it was a no go but i am about to go to the working machine and try to export the reg settings
Ok just because I hate it when people ask questions and solve it and never go back to their post to update it and say solved, here is the resolution. And yes I will credit Rob with 99.99% of the solution. I had to do some additional digging but essentially his last remark got me to where i needed to be.
Apparently the version of my driver installed its registry settings in a different location. Instead of it being at: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Crystal Decisions\9.0\Crystal Reports\Database\QueryBuilder\JoinBuilder]
it was at:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Seagate Software\Crystal Reports\DatabaseOptions\OuterJoin]
This was the reg file that needed to be added.

Thank you for the help Rob! You really saved me today. Thank you.
glad you got it working and happy to steer you in the right direction.
