Changing Crystal Report Connection String in VB.Net

I have a module in A VB.Net called Globals in there I have 2 connection strings

Public dsn1 As String = "Data Source=192.168.999.99;Initial Catalog=recycle;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=sa;"
    'Public dsn2 As String = "Data Source=.\SQLExpress;Database=recycle;Uid=11;Pwd=11;" 'Single System

I first connection string  is working fine and with the click of the buttons on my forms my codes runs fine and it reads the database fine..

The problem is I had to create a crystal report...so I used the report wizard.In the database expert I picked the name of the database from the list of connections in the database expert, I chose the database which was represented in my globals as dsn1.

This works fine....

The problem is if I wanted the same report  to read the data that was represented by the database for dsn2... How would I do this the 2 databases are identical...except they are in 2 separates places..

This is  the call that fires the crystal report....

  cr.SetDatabaseLogon("11", "11")
         
  Dim CrTables As Tables
  Dim CrTable As Table

   CrTables = cr.Database.Tables

        For Each CrTable In CrTables
             CrTable.Location = dsn2
         Next

            cr.RecordSelectionFormula = "{tInv.IID}= " & lnBeginID & ""
            For D = 1 To 1
                cr.SetParameterValue("prm_InvoiceID", D)
                cr.PrintToPrinter(1, False, 0, 0)
            Next

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated...
