SynopsisWhat is a Connection / Connecitivity Method and which ones does .rpt Inspector support?
A connection / connecitivity method is a standard agreed upon specification to communicate with a database. .rpt Inspector supports a subset of the connectivity methods are available in Crystal Reports.
The reason: We had to write our own database routines and selected the most common connectivity methods our users are using. With each new version of .rpt Inspector we survey our users, and review support incidents for additional connectivity methods to support.
So if your connectivity method isn't listed below, be sure to let us know you'd like us to support it.
|Database Connection Method||Supported Databases|
|ODBC||Yes - However Not Tested In Our Labs|
|OLE DB||Yes - However Not Tested In Our Labs|
|Note that there is currently limited support for stored procedures (currently only stored procedures without parameters are supported as we do not prompt for those parameters -- this is expected in a future version).|
