I have a windows form with a CrystalReportViewer, button, and OpenFileDialog.

I would like the user to be able to select the report to view but I want the application to supply the username/password.  I really don't want the Database Login dialog box to appear.  Is this possible?

I tried:
 Private Sub btnOpenReport_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnOpenReport.Click
        OpenFileDialog1.Filter = "Crystal Reports|*.RPT"
        If OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then
            CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = OpenFileDialog1.FileName
        End If

    End Sub

    Private Sub CrystalReportViewer1_ReportRefresh(ByVal source As Object, ByVal e As CrystalDecisions.Windows.Forms.ViewerEventArgs) Handles CrystalReportViewer1.ReportRefresh
        Dim logOnInfo As New TableLogOnInfo
        logOnInfo.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = "servername"
        logOnInfo.ConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = ""
        logOnInfo.ConnectionInfo.UserID = "username"
        logOnInfo.ConnectionInfo.Password = "password"
        CrystalReportViewer1.LogOnInfo.Add(logOnInfo)
    End Sub

Try

Instead of
CrystalReportViewer1.LogOnInfo.Add(logOnInfo)

you can use:
vnt=reportdocumentobject.Database.tables.count
for i=0 to vnt-1
    reportdocumentobject.Database.tables(i).ApplyLogonInfo(logoninfo)
next

and maybe you need:
logoninfo=reportdocumentobject.Database.tables(0).logoninfo
before:
logOnInfo.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = "servername"
