   With CateRpt
      ' Maximize the report viewer
      .WindowState = crptMaximized
   
      ' Select destination to screen
      .Destination = crptToWindow
     
      ' Set the window title
      .WindowTitle = "Preview"
   
    ' Set the report file name
      .ReportFileName = "reportname.rpt"
   
      ' Discard saved data
      .DiscardSavedData = True
   
      ' Connect to database (using ODBC)
      .Connect="DSN=KUMAR;UID=KUMAR;PWD=123"
   
      ' Print the report
      .Action = 1
    End With

If you look in Help it is under DSN-Less connections.  I can't remember the sytax i think it is
Try this using a normal connectino string

..Connect="pwd=Test;uid=test1;provider=SQLOLEDB;database=test"

Don't forget you need to be using the pdssql.dll in your report.  If you aren't within crystal go to Database change driver and select that .dll
