Failing to Verify database in Crystal Reports - CRM 1.2

I'm trying to create custom reports based on custom fields that I have added 
to CRM 1.2. I have read in this group that in order to see my custom fields 
from Crystal I will have to first verify that database.  But when I tried to 
Verify my database I got this error:

failed to load database information.
Details: The database DLL 'crdb_mscrm.dll' could not be loaded.

What I've done is launch Crystal 9.2.2 Pro. and used the 'Enterprise' button 
to find an exsisting CRM Crystal Report to modify. I then select a report, 
click the 'database' pull down menu and select 'verify database'.

Any ideas?

I tried the same thing on a Crystal Report 9.2.2 that was install locally on 
the CRM server. This time I was able to verify my database. I was then able 
to find fields that I had added to the CRM.

If any one know how to get this to work from a remote computer on the LAN 
I'd love to know :) But as it is I can work and make some reports.

Trendline values #2
I used the function "LOGEST" to get an exponential fit of a series of numbers, which gives me a value of 1.0610. I also used "RSQ" function to get the R-square, which is 0.9442. Then I made a chart based on the same series of numbers and add trendline to the curve. I selected "Exponential" under "Type" and checked "Display equation on chart" and "Display R-Squared value on chart". The value shown on the chart is "y=3928.8e^0.0592x" and "R^2=0.9104".

my switchboard prevents me making changes to the database
the database opens with a switchboard screen and doesn't provide access to all the database tools so I can make changes, open tables, etc. In Access 2000 and 2002 you would hold down the control or shift key when you opened the database and it turned off the switchboard control features to open normally. I'm using Office 2003. Is there a similar key to press and hold when you open a database to turn the switchboard feature off? Thanks! Holding down the shift key works exactly the same in Access 2003 as in previous versions. If it's not working for you, perhaps someone set ...
