how to avoid login prompt for Crystal 11 using VB6

We are developing a VB6 app to drive a Crystal 11 report.  I've got it opening the report for display, but every time it does, it prompts for a password.  We are using an ODBC connection to an Informix database, and the userid/password are already in the ODBC.

How do I make the login prompt go away?  All the searching I've done gets me .NET solutions, but we are still in the VB6 world.  Some sample code would be wonderful!

Thanks in advance!

I don't know much about Informix, but it is possible to make the the ODBC connection using a trusted connection? (or whatever the equivalent is in Informix).
