Bypass user / password prompt on a Crystal Report - VS 2005

We have an website developed using Visual Studio 2005.   All the reports were developed using Crystal reports.   When we execute the report, it always asks for a user and password.  How can I pass the user and password for the reports so that the end user is not prompted everytime they run a report?

What you mean by "end user"? Does it mean you or your users who use your application. If its you i guess that much extra work would be ok..!!!
Plus how in a website a report asks for Login credentials?

The end user is the website user.  As stated in the original message - the website was developed using VS 2005.   There are options on the website to run various reports.  Those reports were developed using the built in Crystal Report writer that is included with VS 2005.  These reports are using SQL authentication to access the tables they are reporting against.   So, when the user runs the report from the website, they are prompted for a user and a password.   I want to be able to pass the user and password to the crystal report with the VB code so that the user does not have to log into SQL everytime they run a report.
