Changing the SQL Server for Crystal Reports dynamically

Posted on 2011-10-27
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have created an application in VB.Net 2010 that uses SQL Server as the backend database. I have also created several reports using Crystal Reports and everything works fine on my development machine. When installed on a different computer I can make everything work except Crystal reports. I connected the report to the data using the Field Explorer. The only thing that is different is the server name. My question is how to I change the reference to the server dynamically?
