Accessing Lotus Notes from Crystal Reports in AIX

Hi BO world
We've installed the BO Enterprise Server  on an AIX 5.3 platform and we want to connect this BO server to a Lotus Domino Server (version 8 on a Windows Server Platform ) to show the data on Crystal Reports. The problem is that we can't find any information about how to make this connection to use the Crystal Report INSIDE the InfoView (of course we can export the RPT file and use it with the Crystal Report Viewer but the idea is run the report inside the InfoView).
  In our PC's we have installed the Lotus Notes Client and the corresponding ODBC client (Lotus Notes SQL) and the crystal reports work correctly (accessing to the LNotes Server) BUT, when we start looking for any ODBC for AIX to connect to the Lotus Notes and we can't find any tool to do this.
Could you give any idea o "something" to solve this problem? Let's say
   - Which is the version of ODBC/JDBC driver we have to install in the AIX server to access the L.Notes on the Windows Platform?
   - Should we install the Crystal Report Server in another server (let's say a Windows Server with the corresponding ODBC)
   - Others?
Any help will be great  !
Kindly Regards, gdmon.

Moved this to the BOE forum.
If AIX and Lotus do not have an ODBC driver then I suspect your only option would be to have a Windows BOE install to process those reports so you can use the Windows ODBC driver.
This is a requirement for Crystal reports to connect. If Lotus doesn't support AIX connectivity then we can't either.
Possibly the BOE forum has some configuration options for you...
Thank you

  • Assessing Lotus Domino from Crystal reports

    I am going to work in Crystal reports XI reports and Lotus notes 7.0 for database.( I dont have experience in lotus notes).
    I am going to fix issues in already existing reports.
    I have Crystal reports XI and Lotus notes 7 client installed in my system.
    The database (NSF) file is in server.
    For accessing the NSF file from Crystal reports we need Lotus NotesSql ODBC driver.
    Please help me in installation and configuring the NotesSql ODBC driver for accessing the NSF database from crystal reports.
    I dont know where to install the Lotus NotesSql ODBC driver(in local machine or server) and how to configure it for NSF database.
    And help me in creating file DSN to connect database from Crystal reports.

    Hi Sakthi,
    All we can help you with is connecting Crystal to the DB using ODBC. I suggest you post your question to installing and configuring Lotus Notes ODBC driver to Lotus's support site. Once it is configured all CR requires is that we can find the path to where the client is installed. This is always located in the PC's PATH statement.
    Creating a DSN you do through Control Panel and selecting a System DSN and then selecting Lotus ODBC driver. Fill in what ever is required and test the connection.
    Thank you

  • Can I access Infoset variable from Crystal Reports

    In order to connect Crystal Reports 2008 to the SAP environment I have the Integration kit.
    I have learnt that Crystal also offers InfoSet driver to connect to SAP.
    If I need to access SAP BI- Infoset variables inside Crystal Reports is it possible to do that. If no, then do I need to have the filter using the variable value instead of the fixed filter value?
    Please suggest.

    Hi Amogh,
    the InfoSet connectivity that Crystal Reports offers as a direct Infoset connectivity is towards the classic InfoSets from ERP.
    see here:
    In case you want to connect to an InfoSet in a BW system you would put a BW query on top of the InfoSet and then use the BW Query in Crystal Reports.

  • Accessing Lotus Notes from SAP

    I'm trying to access data of Lotus Notes databases from an ABAP using OLE.
    If the Lotus Notes Class returns a "common" variable (string, number or another object), there is no problem, but when it returns an "stringArray" or a "valueArray" variable I cannot get the value.
    For example, it happens when trying to get the value of a field from a document:
    CALL METHOD OF w_document 'GetItemValue' = w_value
      EXPORTING #1 = 'FieldName'.
    this method returns a "valueArray" value and defining the w_value as string or character in ABAP is does not crash but the content of w_value after having executed this method is always blank.
    Any idea on how to solve it?

    Clean Up Code: (Page_UnLoad event)
    if (Report != null)
    Creportviewer.ReportSource = null;
    dsReport = null;
    Can someone help me resolve the issue.

    The .rpt file size is 14MB with the Data Save option enabled, 12MB without Data Save.  Presumably the 12MB file size is because of the 24bit PNG we have as our background.
    The Designer executes the report in less than a second and we can scroll through all pages and see the image fields perfectly.
    When we Export to PDF, the Designer takes a long time, eventually gets to the 77%, the 7th record and returns "Export report failed" followed by "Memory full".  If we export only page 1 of the 3 pages, it also returns a Memory full error.  However, when the same report is run with only 1 page, that page exports to PDF but with a ridiculously large size and export time.
    The machine has 2GB of physical memory with an 8GB pagefile with Windows 2003 (latest everything).  The process runs up to about 1GB before reporting the memory full error.
    We've also tried a variety of other suggestions posted in the other thread with no success.
    We're happy to provide the RPT file to the Report Team to diagnose the problem.  Ultimately, we need to be able to produce a 15 page report with approximately 45 images.
    Our preferred scenario is fixing problem 2.  The CR Designer seems quite capable of rendering our report and printing it to our third party PDF printer in a timely manner with small size.  However, the API reports memory full.
    The API resides in a dedicated reporting web service with NO other code except for loading the report, setting parameters and printing.  When executing, it uses up to about 1.1GB before reporting the error.
    Are there any other suggestions for fixing what we have?  Are there known problems with large images in reports?  Do we need to lodge a formal support request?
    Regards,  Grant.

  • InfoView not defaulting print settings from Crystal Reports XI

    I have a form/report created from Crystal Reports XI published to InfoView that has the print settings set for the manual tray when printed. When running the report in InfoView, it does not default to the manual tray when printing. I am publishing directly from Crystal Reports. I have the Process/Print Setup 'Set layout to: Report file default' and the Schedule/Format 'Use options saved with report' checkbox checked. I am not finding any other settings to tell InfoView to use the report page layout/printer settings. Anyone know of any other options I should check? Thanks!

  • Trouble accessing Lotus Notes DB Via ODBC NotesSQL 8 driver.

    I am using Crystal Reports version XI and am trying to access lotus notes database via an ODBC connection. My reports have been running sucessfully but we recently upgraded to Lotus Notes 8.  I was receiving error messages stating that the ODBC driver was not compatible so I upgraded to Lotus Notes 8 SQL driver.  Now I am receiving the following errors.
    Crystal Reports
    Database Connector Error: 'IM005:[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLAllocHandle on SQL_HANDLE_DBC failed'
    Crystal Reports
    Logon failed.
    Details: 01000:[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The driver doesn't support the version of ODBC behavior that the application requested (see SQLSetEnvAttr).
    I am now using NotesSQL 8 and Lotus Notes 8, is there something that I need for crystal to recognize them.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks, Stacy

    Hi Stacy,
    I would appear Lotus changed the way their ODBC driver works from version 6. According to our [platforms |] for CR XI we only support Lotus Notes 6.
    We can't fix this now but you may want to ask Lotus if they know of any work arounds or updates to make it backward compatable.
    You may want to try donwloading CR XI R2 SP4 and use your XI keycode to see if that works.
    Thank you

  • Error when exporting to other format from crystal report

    I have been facing an error "Method 'IRCREditableRTFExportFormatOptions_reserved5' on type 'CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel.EditableRTFExportFormatOptionsClass' from assembly 'CrystalDecisions.ReportAppServer.ReportDefModel, Version = 11.0.3300.0, Culture-neutral, PublicKeyToken=692fbea5521e1304' is overriding a method that has been overriden." while trying to export the crystal report to another format (e.g. pdf and excel) from an application from a software vendor.
    For your information, the machine OS that is running the application is Window 7. Before I did the installation of the application, it already has Visual Studio 2005 and Crystal Report XI Release 1 installed in the Window  7 system. After I had the above error, I went to search more information on the website and found out that I need to upgrade to Crystal Report XI Release 2 from the search results. However, after I upgraded from Crystal Report XI Release 1 to Crystal Report XI Release 2 and apply service pack 6, I still faced the same error when I tried to export. I even tried to uninstall Visual Studio 2005 and Crystal Report XI Release 2 but I'm still facing the same above error while exporting. I also tried to reinstall the application from software vendor but the same error come out.
    Your help is highly appreciated. Thanks!!

    Good morning Jennifer
    When you say:
    " I also tried to reinstall the application from software vendor but the same error come out."
    I wonder if the app you are trying to install is from a 3rd party vendor / developer? If it is, installing CR XI r2 (11.5) will not resolve the issue for you. From the error, the app was compiled with CR XI R1 (11.0) and the only way to get that app to use CR XI r2 will be to recompile it with CR XI r2 assemblies. E.g.; you will have to have access to the source code and then recompile the app, ensuring that you are referencing CR XI r2 assemblies. Or am I missing something here?

  • Printing font Barcode3of9 from Crystal Reports XI

    I have an issue with printing font Barcode3of9 from Crystal Reports XI utilizing Manhattan Associates Performance Management (PM) UI application.
    The font is applied to a field that is converted from a number to a text using the CStr formula in Crystal Reports XI in order to display the value as a barcode.
    The barcode on the report is converted successfully in the PM UI 100% of the time.  However the business tries to print the report using the print or the export the report functions and the barcode is not converted 100% of the time into a barcode only the value of the field displays.
    The font is installed on the server that the business accesses and I have installed the font on the web server for our testing environment, but it still does not aide with fixing the issue.
    Does anybody have any experience with this issue?
    Thank you

  • Passing Value from Crystal Report (special function) to Business View parameter

                 Í have a scenario where i need to pass value from Crystal Report to a Business view's parameter.
    Eg : CurrentCEUsername (func in crystal report)-- gives login user  which i should pass to parameter in a Business view (used in the same report).
    Will be able to explain more if required.
    Thanks in Advance,

    I guess you got the picture wrong.  User_id is not a report_level parameter .
    In Data Foundation, below query is used..
    select Acc_Number, Account_Group,User_id  from Accounts where user_id={?User_id}
    where in {?User_id}  is the BV parameter...
    The Filter was a solution. But it takes long time to Query all the data from DB and then filter at BV level.
    How do i pass the CurrentCEUsername to {?User_id}
    Value should ve CurrentCEusername always. so that query will be
    select Acc_Number, Account_Group,User_id  from Accounts where user_id=CurrentCEusername
    It will restrict the data pulled from DB to BV .. right?

  • How to print directly to Printer from Crystal Report Viewer ?

    Hi All,
    We are integrating our Java Web Application with Crystal report XI, currently using JRC and export to PDF for user to preview and print to local printer.
    Now there is new requirement :
    Some clients is using thin client terminal (no harddisk, only has OS +Browser in ROM), so I cannot install Acrobat Reader for them to preview&print the report.
    So I am looking at  Crystal Report Viewer, the question is : Can I print from Crystal Report Viewer directly to local printer without first converting it to PDF (because I can't have acrobat reader installed) ??
    Thank you very much,

    It can't be achieved through XI.
    JRCXI R2 SDK offers the ability to print the report server side
    using the PrintOutputController using printReport(PrintReportOptions printReportOptions) method.
    Here is the code(for XIR2):
    try {
    final String REPORT_NAME = "Inventory.rpt";
    ReportClientDocument reportClientDoc = new ReportClientDocument();, 0);
    //Create and set print options.
    PrintReportOptions printOptions = new PrintReportOptions();
    //Note: Printer with the 'printer name' below must already be configured.
    BOBJ 2C");
    printOptions.setJobTitle("Sample Print Job from JRC.");
    PrintReportOptions.PageRange printPageRange = new PrintReportOptions.PageRange(1,1);
    //NOTE: If parameters or database login credentials are required, they need to be set before.
    //calling the printReport() method of the PrintOutputController.
    out.println("Successfully sent report to the printer.");

  • Passing single/multiple values to stored proc parameter from crystal report

    I tried below solution posted on this forum to pass either a single value or multi-value to a sql server stored procedure parameter (varchar datatype) from crystal report XI R2.
    In my crystal report , I am displaying all the available parameter values to the user  and the user will select either a single value or multi value.
    This worked when I select single value and when I say show sql query in my subreport  I see the following:
    {CALL "XYZ"."dbo"."storedprocedurename";1('Product  1')}
    But this did not worked when I selected multiple values and when I say show sql query in my subreport  I see the following:
    {CALL "XYZ"."dbo"."storedprocedurename";1('Product 1,Product 2')}
    I think it might work if it is as below:*
    For multiple values:
    {CALL "xyz"."dbo"."storedprocedurename";1('Product 1', 'Product 2')}
    Please advise.
    Solution Posted on this forum is as follows:
    As you must be aware of that a crystal report created of a stored procedure will allow only a single value for inserting a multiple value as a parameter in your report and pass those values to your stored procedure please follow the below work around which will be helpful for you.
    In Crystal Reports, you want to pass a multi-value parameter to a stored procedure. The problem with doing so is that Crystal Reports considers the multi-value parameter to be an array.
    How can you pass a multi-value parameter to a stored procedure?
    Here are the steps to pass a multi-value parameter to a stored procedure:
    1. Create a Crystal report, and add a multi-value parameter.
    2. Since the multi-value parameter is treated as an array, create a formula that uses the JOIN function. Create a formula as below:
    //Formula: @JoinFormula
    Join ({?Multi-value parameter array},";")
    In the formula above, a semi-colon (";") is the delimiter.
    3. Within the main report, create a subreport based on the stored procedure, and include the parameter to be populated with the multi-value list.
    4. Link the Join formula in the main report to the stored procedure parameter in the subreport.
    Doing so passes a multi-value parameter to the stored procedure.

    Hi Vinay,
    First you need to make sure the stored procedure accepts multiple values in the fashion 'a','b','c'.
    Then, create this formula in the Main Report:
    numbervar i;
    stringvar s;
    for i:= 1 to ubound({?Parameter}) do
        s := s + "'" + {?Parameter}<i> + "'" + ",";
    Link this formula to the sub-report's parameter.
    Hope this helps!
