Crystal Reports with stored procedures


Hello Members,

I have come across a unique problem (only for me I guess). When I develop a report using a sql command (with sql script), I can run this report against any server or any datatbase dynamically with out using the "Set Data Source Loaction" found under database fields in field explorer. This report is based on a stored procedure and uses a OLEDB connection. When I developed this report for the first time, I defined its database connection (servername,database). Now I have created a same procedure with the same name on different server under a different database. I wanted to run this report against the new server, but I am getting an error " Failed to retrieve data from database". If i click OK on this pop up window. It displays another pop up window and says the old database name is not found in the new server. The criteria is the report should be able to run on any database on any server if the same stored procedure exists in there just like the report with sql command runs. How to solve this problem ?

Thanks in Advance!!!!
