i have 2008 sp3.
i'm trying to download the most recent patch cr2008fp35. let' hope for the miracle.
i have reports with even a undred formulas and to switch from one to the other it's a real problem.
with this installation i also have onather problem: the connection with the oracle client doesn't work. it gives me the error 12154 but it's all ok with the tnsnames, indeed i can use toad.
I have to meke crestal connect via jdbc.
maybe i shoud heve taken a 32 bit OS?
CR2008 is a 32 bit compatible, you need to install Oracle 32 bit drivers to establish a connection from CR to Oracle. Try to create a report using Add command and test whether it is taking more time to execute your report.
If you want use ODBC connectivity try to download DataDirect Drivers 5.3 which will help you to choose a right driver.
yes, Oracle is 32 bit and I repeat that I can connect with toad,SqlNavigator and other reporting tools like Actuate.
I can not create a new command because when it asks for the database neme, user and password it gives me trror i mentiond.
I can bypass this error if I connect via JDBC(JNDI)........... but the thing that worries me more is the time i have to wait when i work with formulas: i click one formula and i have to wait seconds and seconds before i can see the code end edit it, and if i save the canges i have to wait still before it save may changes
maybe it depends by the OS that is HOME edition and not professional?
I had a similar issue yesterday with Crystal. Check your resource monitor. Is your CPU pegged near 100%?
If so, there's probably some local process that is getting in the way. Check your scheduled tasks... are things like defragmenter running? etc.
Hope that helps,
hi, i followed the advice in this forum http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/166597/0/ reinstalling crystal under onother directory and now both problems seems to have desapeard.
thank you all
