hi csada, please bear with me if i haven't fully understood the question yet. you have created a report in cr 8 using an ole db connection and want to point this report via vb to a different server / database? If so, here is some code for the report designer component (rdc).

Dim myReport As CRAXDRT.Report
.....
Dim myTable As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable
For Each myTable In myReport.Database.Tables
  myTable.SetLogOnInfo "ServerName", "DatabaseName", "User", "Password"
  myTable.Location = "Database.dbo." + myTable.Name
Next

let us know in case you are using a different object model, although i dont think i could help you myself then.
