Change Datasource with code in Crystal Report using 2008

Posted on 2012-08-20
Last Modified: 2013-03-09
I have several crystal reports being used in a working vb application.  Currently the reports are hard coded to look at a specifice .mdb file in a folder.  I would like to be able to change the datasource location from code to point to a different .mdb with exactly the same table structure.

    Hope it helps.

    If you want the access version, this could help as well.
