Crystal Reports with SQL Compact

I stumbled across this post by Jason Irwin, that describes how to solve the mystery of connecting Crystal Reports to data from a SQL Compact file – by elegantly using a dataset as the “middleman” or common language, if you like.

The link has indeed died.
I tried at different time intervals just in case to take care of the internet-service-provider's hiccups.

IF possible, please do a repost of "Jason Iriwn's" content on a well known SQL-CE forum (msdn may be)

That was just a suggestion as many people like me seem to be stuck into this trap of SQL CE Vs Crystal Reports.

The link works fine for me!? An alternative approach is described here: http://erikej.blogspot.com/2008/10/accessing-sql-compact-from-sql-server.html

You are just convert dataset to xml file and save one particular location then you can easily do the crystal reports using sql server compact edition

The link has indeed died, as I changed the domain some time ago. Here is an updated link.

I'm glad you found the information worthwhile.

Cheers,
