How to set the Crystal Report control connection properties at run time.
I am using SQL server database. When the database server name changed, i need to change all reports database location one by one. Is there a way to pass the connection properties to Crystal report from VB, so when i changed on database server name in VB, no change required on CR.

Hope someone can help me on this. Thanks
