    Unanswered: Add database (CSV file)

    Hi All,

    In crystal report I choose "Database" -> "Add database to report" -> Database explorer select "Database file" and click "Add" -> select a CSV file.

    It show error message that the selected CSV file is "not a know database type"...

    Anyone?

    csv is a comma-delimted text file. You need to convert or export it to your database format.

    Convert/Export?

    I am using the Comma-delimited text file.
    This CSV file is processed from the database that I use.

    I just wanna the crystal report to extract the data based on CSV rules.
    and write it to the crystal report.

    On the other machine it is working fine,
    but not on my PC.
    So I think may be is the some setup I did not perform but not known which!
