In Crystal Reports CMC, how to batch change the ODBC Connection in all report instances?

Hi!

We are migrating a DB server that requires our Crystal Reports to use a new ODBC connection (tipical I might add). This was changed in rpt file, published in the server and everything is fine, but (as always) besides the new Database Configuration appear in the Report Object, it doesn't changed the previously created instances (scheduled reports).

Question: Is there a way to reflect the new Database Configuration of the base report object in all of its intances?

Or, Is there a way to do a batch update in all instances ?

We have arround 80 instances that needed to be updated and I trying to find a more efficient to do it.

Any help is welcome!

Best Regards

Cristiano

    I changed the TAG to SBOP Platform since this is more of a migration/update question.

    The only way to do this that I know of is to either purchase a 3rd party tool (I think something from APOS will do this) or write your own code using the SDK - either .NET or Java.
