I've been asked by our users to figure out why, reports stored with .psr
extension, do not open without connecting to the database. Apparantly,
this was possible with IM 4. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I believe that happens when the last db-profile you've used prompts for your
userid/password. It is very annoying. Since a PSR report is a standalone,
db independent object, it shouldn't matter.

Terry,

Thanks for the response, but as you stated, "a PSR report is a standalone, db
independent object" is exactly what the problem is. What happens is that it
doesn't act as a stand alone. It always tries to connect to the db, and when it
can't find it, it won't open the report. It shouldn't work this way. We're
trying to figure out why this is and how to fix it.

Thanks,

Gary

I prefer to view psr files with a custom built psrviewer. If you're
interested, I'll send you one.
