Crystal Report Password

Good morning, how are you?  I am trying to update a report that was created before I took over and I need to update the dates and change from calendar year to fiscal year.

Can anyone assist me with this?

Thank you

Hello,

Crystal Reports and BI product will never save a password, huge security problem if it did, anyone could run sensitive reports.

Check with Your DBA Administrator for access to that DB, you can't get it from a report.

No this is not the case because i am trying to change and it is asking for a password. I am an administrator and my password is not working.

Would there be a way you can copy a report and create a new one from original and before saving changing the dates.

If you look closer at the log on prompt it's asking you to log into BOE System and not your DB, likely the report uses something in the repository, Universe or formula etc.
