1220295 - Prompted to log on to database when modifying record selection formula

Symptom

A Crystal report that contains linked subreports and shared variables. When attempting to modify the record selection formula, you are prompted to log on to the database.

Cause

The cause of the issue is that, for any subreport linked to a recurring field in the main report, linked parameter values are compared only when the subreport data source is accessed.

The issue has been identified and tracked under ID ADAPT00587101.

Resolution

Hot Fixes or Service Packs address this issue as indicated below. With the update(s), this issue is resolved.

Known limitations: Note that this update will change the behavior of a report that has multiple subreport instances using the same linked parameter values but a different state of shared variable. The first data source that matches the linked parameter values is returned; therefore, the shared variable values in the second subreport instance and next may be incorrect. For example:

Main report:

Group1: Country

Group2: Region

Shared variable: Shared NumberVar test := 0;

Subreport:

Link to field "Country" in main report

Shared variable: Shared NumberVar test := test+1;

Insert this subreport to Group2 Region

Before this HotFix is installed:

Group1 Canada

Group2

BC: subreport instance 1 - shared variable value "0"

ON: subreport instance 2 - shared variable value "1"

NS: subreport instance 3 - shared variable value "2"

After this HotFix is installed :

Group1 Canada

Group2

BC: subreport instance 1 - shared variable value "0"

ON: subreport instance 2 - shared variable value "0"

NS: subreport instance 3 - shared variable value "0"

Unless indicated otherwise, Critical Hot Fix updates from the FTP site have only been tested with English versions of our products.
