Issue Description

When previewing or printing a report with Forms Printer, the following error is being generated:
"This report is using an invalid ODBC Datasource named 'XXX'. Use ODBC Setup to create this driver or create a driver named 'XXX' to allow Forms Printer to print from this company."

This error occurs most frequently when a sample report has been modified by adding new tables, and these new tables were either not made generic or they were added using a different DSN than the original report tables.

Solution

To correct this issue, review the 'Modifying Sample Reports' section of the Forms Printer documentation for the selected database type.
