Okay, it sounds like you have designed a DR on one machine (Computer1) and now are trying to use it from a second machine (Computer2). Which means, it could be as simple as accidently hard coding the path to the database and since you are on another computer, that path is incorrect. Make sure you are specifying the correct path...

Good Luck

If you create a ODBC DSN for your connection on your dev machine, you must create it on the target machine...

Good Luck

yes i have create the DSN on my target computer also,but again it shows the same error "invalid data source"

Did you test the ODBC DSN? Did you name it correctly? I mean exactly the same name as there may be a space in the name...

Good Luck

yes i checked, testing also successful, but still it shows same error.

Okay, so you have created the ODBC DSN on the target computer and have tested it and it works... So that means that the required drivers are on the machine for it to work... It is pointed correctly to the datasource...

Okay, beyond saying that you need to create an install package and not just copy over your exe,... I'm out of ideas as it sound like you have done everthing right...

Good Luck
