How to switch Datasource from OLE to ODBC for existing report

I have a report that must be deployed to an app that requires all datasource connections to be ODBC. I do not have access to the source for this app since it is from/developed by a 3rd party.

My report has 3 commands (Command, Command_1, Command_2) against an OLE datasource. I cannot figure out how to switch these over from OLE to my ODBC datasource and still maintain all the existing Crystal internal references to fields for the content, formulas, etc.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

    Hi Marvin

    There is a SAP note that helps us to update the Datasource location. The Note # is 1215594.

    Link to the Note is as given below:
