Data on report won't change

Problem : If you're using crystal report to design a report and the data displayed on the report won't change.

Solution : Go check the report. Open it, then make sure that on menu File -> Save Data With Report -> is NOT checked.

This is actually a minor problem, but sometimes, people forget or don't notice it.

    this is my code on vb...
    CrystalReport1.SQLQuery = "SELECT * from cetak_periksa"
    CrystalReport1.UserName = userDb
    CrystalReport1.Password = passDb
    CrystalReport1.Connect = cnStr
    CrystalReport1.ReportFileName = App.Path & "\report\cetakperiksa.rpt"

    usually i use that script and it work,,,but why suddenly it didn't work...
    i ever get the same problem,,, but it solved by it self before i fixed it (i mean it fixed automatically without me)

    Hmm, what kind of connection do you use for the report? I usually use either stored procedur (ODBC), or TTX. I prefer using TTX, it is more flexible.
    You can see how to use TTX on my earlier post :

    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.Open "select CustomerID, CompanyName, ContactName from customers where customerid like 'A%'", conn, 1, 3
    With CrystalReport1
    .Connect = conn
    .SetTablePrivateData 0, 3, rs
    .ReportFileName = App.Path & "\rptTest.rpt"
    .WindowState = crptMaximized
    .Destination = crptToWindow
    .WindowShowPrintSetupBtn = True
    .WindowShowSearchBtn = True
    .WindowShowRefreshBtn = True
    .WindowShowSearchBtn = True
    .Action = 1
    End With

    This is how I do it with TTX. Remember, if you use TTX, the fields in the .TTX file must be exactly the same as in the datasource.
