Failed to open the connection. Details: Database vendor code 17. This is the error am getting when try to generate crystal reports. In the same project, i can do other operations on the same database like insert, update, delete and select. Just can not generate the reports. However on the development machine, i can view the reports.
I am using Visual Studio 2010, C#, and crystal reports
