Two ways:

First:
You can use a DSN.
Create one in your control panel (or admin tools in w2k) and let CR connect to that.
If your path changes, just alter the DSN.

Second:
Build a connect string dynamicly and let CR connect to that string.
You can read the location of the db from the registry or let the user input it.

I prefer using the DSN.

Sorry, didn't have much time lately...

I can give you an example for DataReport.
As far as I remember (I don't use CR anymore !) it worked approx. the same.
Is that ok with you ?

macob,

I believe roverm gave you a solution to your problem. I see that you were looking to delete this question.

If roverm's suggestions didn't solve your problem, can you tell us why? Otherwise I think it would be appropriate to accept roverm's comments.
