    I have an MS Access database that has a linked table to a Windows Sharepoint
    Services list.

    I have a crystal report that uses that linked table as a data sourced. The
    report runs on my windows XP workstation where I have MS Office 2003
    installed. . When I deploy that report to a server and try to run it, I get
    an error message "Could not find installable ISAM". I do not have MS office
    installed on the server and installing it on the server is not an option.
    I have tried ADO, RDO & DAO & a couple of other data different drivers to
    try to get that linked table to be seen inside of Crystal on the server, but
    none of them work. They all give me an error about the installable ISAM
    problem. But they all work on my PC.

    What do I need to install or register to allow my crystal report to access
    the MS access linked table?

    That's a good question to ask Crystal Reports support, as most of us here
    are not users of Crystal because our reporting needs are well-satisfied with
    Access reports.

    Once I was able to get a good telephone connection to Crystal Tech support
    over on the other side of the world and spent 1/2 an hour trying to get them
    to understand the issue, they told me that since it is an MS Driver problem,
    they do not support it.

    Crystal tech support has really gone downhill in the past 2 years.
