1. Make sure this in not a Crystal 8.5 report.
2. Make sure all of the databases and connections to tables in the report are:
a. The same company database
b. ODBC connections
3. Make sure you are using direct SQL security, not a Trusted connection.

For best results, you should pull up this report in the latest or  recent version of Crystal, verify the direct SQL connection and confirm all data sources point via ODBC to the company database.
