 changing data source in crystal report @ runtime

I am using the Crystal Reports 4.6 OCX in my VB5 app, which uses Jet
3.5. I want to enable dynamic database location in the app, but I am
having a problem w/the reports.

objects in the Access DB. The reports were written so they reference
the Query objects. The problem that I have is that the location of the
DB (as far as Crystal is concerned) is static, so if User A has the db
on c:\myapp, they can't read a report that expects the db in g:\myapp.

runtime, but I am not sure how to do it. Any help is greatly
