Delphi - Crystal 11 ActiveX/RDC : Need example setting database connection & parameters -

I am using Delphi 7 & 2007, Crystal 11 [ActiveX / RDC] and MS-SQL2005
I  imported the Crystal type library.
I've tried two ways to create a report view: oApp and iApp
They both work as long as I do not need to change the database or parameters
I would appreciate an example showing how to set the runtime database
connection and runtime parameters for an MS-SQL stored procedure used by the report.
Thank you,
Robert Baker

procedure TTestCR11.cxButton2Click(Sender: TObject);
var MyPath:string;
  if Form2 = nil then
    Form2 := TForm.Create(self);
  Form2.Height := Height * 3;
  Form2.Width := Width * 3;
  CrystalActiveXReportViewer1 := TCrystalActiveXReportViewer.Create(Form2);
  oApp :=CreateOleObject('CrystalRuntime.Application');
  MyPath := 'C:\Crystal\' + cxListBox2.Items[cxListBox2.ItemIndex];
  CrystalActiveXReportViewer1.Parent := Form2;
  CrystalActiveXReportViewer1.Align := alClient;
  CrystalActiveXReportViewer1.ReportSource := oRpt;
    iApp : CRAXDRT_TLB.TApplication;
    iRep : CRAXDRT_TLB.IReport;
  iApp  := CRAXDRT_TLB.TApplication.Create(Self);
  iRep  := iApp.OpenReport('C:\mycrystal.rpt', CrOpenReportByTempCopy);
  iRep.Database.LogOnServer('crbd_ado.dll', 'mysqlserver', 'mydatabase', 
'myuserid', 'mypassword');
  iRep.EnableParameterPrompting := False;
