Changing servername on existing reports

I built some crytal reports 3 years ago which point to a server that no longer exist. A new server now exist with the same database structure and field attributes so how can use the old report but only change the database name/server/userid/password it's pointing to?

This was don using Crytal Reports v8.0.1.1.

tks

    click on Database-Set Datasource location and map your existing report to the new database.

    it may be worth creating a simple report with your new database prior to this so as to be able to see it in the Connections area.
