Crystal Report with two databases requires login for second database.

I use VS 2008, CR IX, and SQL 2005.  I have developed a crystal report which contains 3 subreports.  Two of the subreports use a single database. The 3rd subreport connects to a different database.  The report works properly except the 3rd subreport causes a user login prompt. to display each page of the report. The data connection for the first database is opened by the connection string in the webconfig file.  I tried adding a second connection string to the config file with no success. I need to eliminate the user login prompt.
