Crystal Reports NANT plugin or C# Accessible API??

P: n/a
Windows XP
C# .NET 2.0
Crystal Reports v10

I have an application that has 30+ Crystal Reports. Due to bad
planning {not by me} the database connection settings are hard coded
into each report.

We tried to set database connection information at runtime just before
executing the report but that didn't work. I do not have the budget
or the time to rework all of the reports to run off of datasets.

Is there some way that I can set database connection information in
these reports at runtime? OR is there a NANT plugin or an API that can
effectively perform these steps:

1) Open report
2) Iterate all database connections
3) Change server/username/password/database name
4) Save report
