  1. When the report is running but prompted for database password..then you can use bellow code to avoid this..

    using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;

    And then in the page load add the following 2 lines

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    CrystalReportSource1.ReportDocument.SetDatabaseLogon("user", "pswd","server","database name");

    CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = CrystalReportSource1;
