Please refer to the enclosed method, it can change the datasource, userid, password and databasename of a ReportDocument (support sub-report)

and you can get there information from web.config
            System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnectionStringBuilder SConn = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnectionStringBuilder(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);
           
            SetCRLogOnInfo(rptDoc, SConn.DataSource, SConn.UserID, SConn.Password, SConn.InitialCatalog);
        public void SetCRLogOnInfo(ReportDocument mainInRD, string dataSource, string userId, string pwd, string DatabaseName)
        {
            //do the main reports database
            TableLogOnInfo logonInfo = null;

            foreach (CrystalDecisions.CrystalReports.Engine.Table table in mainInRD.Database.Tables)
            {
                logonInfo = table.LogOnInfo;
                logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.ServerName = dataSource;
                logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.DatabaseName = DatabaseName;
                logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.UserID = userId;
                logonInfo.ConnectionInfo.Password = pwd;
                table.ApplyLogOnInfo(logonInfo);
            }
            try
            {
                //now update logon info for all sub-reports
                if (!mainInRD.IsSubreport && mainInRD.Subreports != null && mainInRD.Subreports.Count > 0)
                {
                    foreach (ReportDocument rd in mainInRD.Subreports)
                    {
                        SetCRLogOnInfo(rd, dataSource, userId, pwd, DatabaseName);
                    }
                }
            }
            catch
            {
            }
        }
