"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not really.

In some versions you can specify SAME AS REPORT
Open the report
Click DATABASE --> SET LOCATION
There may be  acheck box for SAME AS REPORT

What are you trying to accomplish?

Are you using an application to call the reports?

You can chnage the database and server name that the report logs in in runtime by writing a small application. If you need help with that I can help you. I have an application written in C#, using crystal reports 10 Developer edition,

Let me know how it goes.
