Perhaps you should provide us a bit more information on the situation.
Can't you just set up 2 database aliases pointing to the 2 servers and setting the TDatabase.DatabaseName property within your application?

My question again was,

Not how to set up and ALIAS, it was how to set the SERVER property..  The application is very large and has tons of references to that alias.  We have three development servers, and  I want to write an applet that will just write that one property in the .CFG file and save it..

Thanks
