Here is the final code:
using CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine;
using CrystalDecisions.Shared;

public partial class Members_Reports_cr : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        ReportDocument crReportDocument = new ReportDocument();
        crReportDocument.Load(@"C:\Sites\Tony\ST\ST_Web\Members\Reports\Entire.rpt");        
        Database crDatabase;
        Tables crTables;
        CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Table crTable;
        TableLogOnInfo crTableLogOnInfo;
        ConnectionInfo crConnectionInfo = new ConnectionInfo();
        crConnectionInfo.ServerName = "DNSERVER";
        crConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = "ST";
        crConnectionInfo.UserID = "xx";
        crConnectionInfo.Password = "yy";
        crDatabase = crReportDocument.Database;
        crTables = crDatabase.Tables;
        for (int i = 0; i < crTables.Count; i++)
            {
            crTable = crTables [i];
            crTableLogOnInfo = crTable.LogOnInfo;
            crTableLogOnInfo.ConnectionInfo = crConnectionInfo;
            crTable.ApplyLogOnInfo(crTableLogOnInfo);
            //If your DatabaseName is changing at runtime, specify
            //the table location. For example, when you are reporting
            //off of a Northwind database on SQL server
            //you should have the following line of code:
            crTable.Location = "" +
                crTable.Location.Substring(crTable.Location.LastIndexOf
                (".") + 1);
            }        
       CrystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = crReportDocument;
    }
}

Im using VS 2008 Pro with its bundled CR tool and i am sitting with the same problem. I tried the solution and i receive the following error:
Logon failed.
Details: ADO Error Code: 0x
Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Description: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.
SQL State: 08001
Native Error:

I receive this error on the following row:
for (int i = 0; i < crTables.Count; i++)
with the "i++" highlighted as the problem

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

DeonM - Generally it is a good idea to ask your own question.  Only the asker and a limited number of experts will see this question.
