Please pardon me if this is the wrong place to post this question. I am new to creating data connections to backend servers and really need some help here.
I have a sql server table which I have full rights too. I have created a system dsn called DataConnection back to the database. That works fine. I created a form in Livecycle Designer ES2 and successfully made a data connection in LiveCycle called 'DataConnection' back to the table called 'Facts'. I'm able to generate the table fields on the form with no issue and I can see the first record populated when i do pdf preview.
Question 1 - Why is it if I dont have 'delayed open' checked on the connection properties I receive a message box 'connection for Source DataConnection failed because the environment is not trusted'?
Question 2 - For this test form, all I want to do is navigate and view the records (ie go to next, go to previous). I followed the sample from this page: http://forms.stefcameron.com/2006/09/18/connecting-a-form-to-a-database/ ; and created my navigation buttons for previous and next. However, when click the buttons I receive the error that the operation failed because there was no connection specified. screenshot is attached. Can I someone tell me what I am missing here?
Ultimately what I want is a form that will be available from a web server that people can navigate data through. The data will be on a sql table. There is no need to update, add or delete records. They will just view directly from this form . Am I going in the right direction?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
