All of our reports currently have the connection string embeded into the report (or they've got a DSN specified).  I want to replace that real time when a report is called from our batch engine so I only have the change the connection string there, and not in every report.  How do I have .Net (Vb or C#) hand off a new connection string to the report?

I forgot to mention, we're using Crystal 10 and the .Net Framework 2.0 (and whatever Crystal Merge modules came with Visual Studio 2005).
