Default Run-time error '20599'; Cannot open SQL Server

Dear All,

I am using Visual Basic 6.0 (VB 6.0) Crystal Report 8.5 and Access 2000.

I am getting Run-time error '20599'; Cannot open SQL Server.

Can any one help me. I have tried this on Windows 98, WinXP and Windows 2000 plateforms.

Thanks

No one will be able to hazard a gues without some context.
What is the statement that raises the error (for instance)?
Are you able to gain acces to SQL Server with other programs?

Feel free to add any details you think might shed light on what it is that you are doing.
