[thelist] Crystal Reports Question

Got a new job in a new part of the country, and guess what? I'm using
old stuff. Figures. Anyhoo...

I'm dorking around with a Crystal Report (w/VB6, fun!) that needs to
dynamically pick up the db settings when it is opened (run time). For
some reason I can not figure out (CR 9), the db settings done at
design time are being saved with the report, which is bad, since the
db is a dev db at design time, and needs to be a different db at run
time. I've tried changing the driver used (from RDO to ADO), changing
the DSN on the fly, using a connection string (not specifying
anything but the DSN) as per one of Crystal's KB articles, nothing
seems to work. Anyone have ideas?

Thanks :)
(finally doing .net stuff, but at home instead of at work lol)
