using the set location command in the crystal reports designer you shouldnt have any problem changing the database. this should be done for you. so i assume you are changing the database at runtime? if so, you need to change the table location. here is some vb6 / rdc 9 code that should take care of this. i hope this helps, but let me know in case i misunderstood the question or in case you are using some other object model

Dim myReport As CRAXDRT.Report
Dim myTable As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable
For Each myTable In myReport.Database.Tables
  myTable.ConnectionProperties("Data Source") = "NewSqlServer"
  myTable.ConnectionProperties("Database") = "newDatabase"
  myTable.ConnectionProperties("Password") = "ThePassword"
  myTable.ConnectionProperties("User ID") = "TheUser"
  myTable.Location "NewDatabase.dbo." + myTable.Name

For setting the databaes at runtime use the following code

First declare the recordset of that table which you are using the report
then write the following code
Report.Database.SetDatasource rs,3,1  'rs is the recordset of that  table which you are using

If you are using more than one table then you can use another recordset
Report.Database.SetDatasource rs23,2 'rs2 the recordset of thoe second table
