I am testing our 4.1 with Crystal 2013 - I know there is the Ora 12C driver. Is this the driver I should use in crystal or is there a CR driver for it.

Hi Eileen,

There is a problem with Oracle 12c, Oracle changed the way CR queries the DB, they turned on Return_All for views and synonyms so if you use them your report will go from 10 seconds to 10 minutes before it starts showing data.

If you can avoid using them please do so. DEV is working on it with Oracle but Oracle basically said that's the way it works now... nothing more we can do... Issue is Server side...
