Hi Archana!

Error# 20599 may come due to following circumstances -
[1] The data source is renamed, moved or deleted after creating the recordset or unavailable.
[2] An ODBC Data Source Name (DSN) is renamed or deleted after creating the recordset.
[3] A password is required to connect to the original data source.

This problem is most talked about problem and the reasons may be any of these, or may be some other consistency related problems in your database.
Ask your admin. for such consistency checks, due to reason than rename or unavailability of objects may be a prime cause of such error.

I think I had this error once uppon a time. Crystal when you do verify database does not function properly in updating its information if its field names change. You need to see a new database source (if its a stored procedure as its source as it should be simply copy the stored proc to another name). Change the data source to something else that is exactly the same, then change it back to the origional. This gets past a long tim crystal bug in their verify database code not checking everything.
