How do I programatically open a Crystal Report (an existing rpt file) in a VB.NET windows form and set record select criteria. I have Crystal 11 label reports already established in our ERP system, and need to view / print labels using these reports based on 2 different field criteria.

I cannot find where this tells me how to load an existing Crystal Report and access its properties.

Let me explain further.
I have successfully pulled a Crystal Report (Label) into the VB.NET solution, changed its database source,and got a good report - set of labels.
Our ERP system has about 100 Crystal labels, and they are changing and being added to.

Is there a way to use one of the existing label reports and control its database source?

From other comments on this site, there seems to be the opinion that if you are using non-rmbedded reports then you can't change the data source through VB.Net at least in VS2005.
