Crystal stores the column names in the report.  For an example of this, build a simple report with a table and then add a field to the table - it won't appear in the field explorer until you specifically validate the database.  So, if the stored procedure can return different column names in different orders, you won't be able to see the actual field names in the report designer.

I've got a similar problem.  I'm using SQL Server 2000 and Visual Studio 2008 with it's bundled version of Crystal Reports.  I had a report populated by a stored procedure, but changed the stored procedure to use dynamic SQL (only for selection criteria, not for column names).  I can now preview the report from the .rpt tab with no errors, but when the report runs, as soon as the CR viewer loads, I get a pop-up Query Engine Error: '42S02... Invalid object name '.report_vw'  (which is prepended in code with a dynamic database name) Failed to open a rowset.  After clicking OK and putting in the parameters, the report still runs fine.  Any idea how to avoid the pop-up?  Thanks.
