Setting CrystalReportViewer's ReportSource to a remote file

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Shannon Cayze, Jul 22, 2003.

  1. Hello all,

    I'm having trouble using a CrystalReportViewer when I set the
    ReportSource property to a file on another server. When I do this, I
    get a "Load report failed" exception. I've learned how to use
    impersonation, and can do anything with the source file I want,
    including moving or deleting it. So I know it's not a security issue,
    but when I set the same file to be the ReportSource of the viewer, I
    get the exception above. I've gotten around it by calling File.Copy()
    to move it to the local machine, using the ReportSource from there,
    and then calling File.Delete(), but I don't want to do it this way.
    Can anyone tell me why this won't work?

    Thanks in advance,
