I have a few hundred Crystal Reports.  I need to change the datasource location on all of these reports.  Is there any way to do a mass change on all of the reports without loading, changing, and re-saving each of them one at a time?

There are several 3rd-party tools that can do what you want.

A good list of the tools can be found at Ken Hamady's site

Ken has also done an evaluation of the tools and updates it once a year.
