I have a VS 2008 app I am building. I REALLY need your help VB Crystal Reports Experts! Works great but asks for database credentials when Crystal Reports Viewer attempts to launch the report. The stucture is that the app passes parameters to a stored procedure on a MS SQL box which creates a temporary table. Then the CR inside of the CRviewer reports on the temporary table. All works fine except that the user is prompted for DB credentials (information they are not allowed to know), when the CRviewer launches. I have been struggling with this for a week! I have searched and searched the code here and everywhere else but I cannot find something that works or if I do find something, I am affraid to try it because I don't know where it should go? I think maybe it needs to be part of this but I don't know if this is where it belongs or what the code should be.
Partial Class RptViewer
'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
Protected Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
If disposing AndAlso components IsNot Nothing Then

ALL help is very much appreciated. I am a newbie but I have built a great app that fully meets some complex business requirements. All I need now is to get past this one last thing!!!
