I am trying to connect Crystal Reports XI release 2 to my VPS. I am trying to connect with the following step :
In Database expert menu i am selecting OLE DB (ADO) and then selecting Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server. Then it asks me Server, UserID, Password, Database. I am filling the fileds but when i try to select database it shows nothing. When i leave the database field empty and click on next then it give me the following message:
“Failed to open the connection. Details: ADO Error Code:0x Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server Description : [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect().]SQL Server does not exist or access denied. SQL State:08001 Native Error: [Database Vendor Code:17]”
Could you please advise.
