CrystalReportViewer ReadOnly

Good Afternoon


I am calling the CrystalReportViewer from my application and am running into a record locking issue.  When setting up the connection, how can I make it READONLY?  

I am using the ReportDocument as the ReportSource in the following line of code:
CrystalReportViewer.ReportSource = RD

So, I am looking at how to pass a setting to the Viewer as READONLY.  I thought I was onto something
with this:
CrystalReportViewer.LogOnInfo.IsReadOnly = True but that does not work since the Property IsReadOnly is ReadOnly.  

How can I tell the connection to be set as READONLY so my CrystalReports do not lock hundreds and thousands of records that don't need to be locked.

Crystal should be opening it read-only.  Crystal doesn't have the ability to update the database.

I am trying ot find the equivalent of running a SQL statement using with (nolock).  When running a report
with thousands and thousands of records Users are locking up other Users.

I haven't run into the issue so I don't know if there is a way.
