I can't get the Crystal 10 viewer to switch databases. SQL 2000, Crystal, VB 6.0, CRAXDRT

I can't get the Crystal 10 viewer to switch databases.  I have some code below that worked with the CRAXDRT.dll library in Crystal 8.5.  I commonly have to fire a crystal reports that are pointed at SQL servers and usually use either OLEDB or ODBC as it's connection.  I am always having to test a crystal report agains a test database, and then copy this crystal report into a production environtment.   Since the software we support moved to crystal 10 (yeah I know that was a while ago...) I haven't been able to get the craxdrt library to actually switch databases.  It just continues to point at the database that was used to develope the crystal report.

Below is the boiled down VB 6.0 code I use:

Public pbReport As CRAXDRT.report
Public Sub RunReport(ByVal PnFileNameIN As String)
Dim report  As New CRAXDRT.report
Dim crxApplication As New CRAXDRT.Application
Dim crxDatabase As CRAXDRT.Database
Dim crxDatabaseTable As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable

Set report = crxApplication.OpenReport(PnFileNameIN, 1)

For Each crxDatabaseTable In report.Database.Tables
' FOR ODBC
crxDatabaseTable.SetLogOnInfo "ODBC datasource name", Database, "<<Use Integrated Security>>"
' FOR OLEDB
crxDatabaseTable.SetLogOnInfo server, Database, user, pwd
Next crxDatabaseTable
Set pbReport = report
' frmprint uses PBreport as it's reportsource
frmprint.Show

End Sub

Is data saved with the report?

To answer both of your questions, the Data is not saved with the report,
and the Server remains the same, only the Database changes.  

In addition, the user has dbo access to both databases.

I looked for the TableLogOnInfo method in the CRAXDRT library, as it seems to be the focal point of the two examples you provided, but I could not find it.  Is there another library I should be referencing, or did you have any luck finding a VB 6 example?  I'm somewhat trapped in VB 6 era technologies for a while, so .net solutions don't usually help.

Thanks for any help!
