Crystal Reports for .NET and Oracle problem - Logon failed

Hi wise people,
Has anyone encountered the Crystal Reports problem I describe below?
If so, how did you solve it? It seems that every article posted on
google regarding CR and logon problems is still unanswered. I think
I'm cursed.

I originally created a crystal report which connects to a sql server
server db on the same dev machine and it worked just fine. I tried to
move it to another computer, but now I have to connect to an Oracle
database which resides on another server. So, I created a DSN called
myDSN, and changed my report to use the new DSN. I made sure that I
set the database name to "" (empty string) as specified by the Crystal
Support website: see
Unfortunately I keep getting a logon failure.
Any ideas about this problem?
I appreciate your help.

Here is my code:
