Hi,
I just want the code to change the database connection dynamically(changing server name and database name) without using the dataset or data table when connecting to a crystal report that works well in visual studio 2010 (either c#.net or vb.net)?
In other words I want to simply pass server name and database name from visual studio 2010 to crystal reports to generate report in a different server and database other than the report originally created, without using data set or data table in .net

You can use SetDatabaseLogon() method exposed to set parameters of connection at runtime.

Try:
 myCrystalReprot.SetDatabaseLogon("myUsername", "myPassword","servername","dbname");

Refer:
C# Crystal Reports Dynamic Logon parameters [^]
MSDN: Using the SetDatabaseLogon() Method of the ReportDocument Class[^]
