  • Hello,

    We will need more information for instance

    • Is the app installed on another computer or did you simply install on your computer.
    • How are data operations done e.g. using TableAdapter method or another method
    • What else does the app do besides using Crystal reports, is data shown in other controls e.g. TextBoxes, DataGridView etc.
    • Where is the database located in the app folder or another folder.
    • Do you have any try-catches with empty catches
    • Is the computer installed with your app the same OS e.g. Windows 10 and is the computer on or off a network

  • Hi Karen Payne,

    -The application is installed on another computer.

    - And operations is done using methods.

    - Data is showing in Textboxes and Datagridview.

    - The database is located in the app folder.

    - I have try-catches.

    - yea the computer installed with my app the same Operating system.

    - the computer is a standalone not a network.


    For your Information:

    The application is in the visual studio 2013 folder, which in the same folder has a bin and debug folder, that the database located inside and the app. I have sample datas' already entered inside. when i search sample data they displayed in the crystal report,but when i entered new data and try to search it, does not display in the crystal report. that was after i set it up using installed shield called SSE.

    Thank you in advance.
