Experts:

We are changing our reporting database server and need to change our current crystal reports to point to this new server. We thought an update of the odbc would be sufficient, but it appears the connection details are nested in each report. Is there a way for us to globally update this connection?

We're using crystal enterprise 9 with reports built in crystla reports 2008.

thanks in advance for any help.

There are third-party tools that claim to be able to do it.

these tools will do the job, but after investigating more, I managed to just change the odbc conn and got it working.
